MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin legislators will soon get a harvest of input from farmers they represent.
The Farm Bureau Federation’s “Ag Day” is normally one of the biggest lobbying events of the year – and this year, it’s set for March 6th.
It starts with a lunch at Monona Terrace in Madison, where farmers will hear from a couple of lawmakers. Then, the group will take a one block walk to the State Capitol to meet with their own Assembly and Senate representatives.
The Farm Bureau says the major topics will deal with the economics of agriculture, animal welfare, and environmental concerns.
Those attending are urged to make their own appointments with their lawmakers in advance.
