News Editor

The Dairy Business Association of Wisconsin has awarded Assembly Representative Samatha Kerkman the ‘Friend of the Wisconsin Dairy Industry’ award. It’s great to see our leaders getting honored for supporting the dairy industry!

The Randall Republican was selected for the honor for her continual support of the industry and her 100-percent support of the issues that matter most to the dairy producers in Wisconsin.

The DBA says Kerkman supported measures such as Livestock Siting Standards, Deductions for the Depreciation of Property Used in Farming, Credit for Sales and Use Tax on Property Used in Farming, Special Weight Limits for Vehicles Transporting Agriculture Crops, and Funding for the Research and Development of Anaerobic Digesters.

“Dairy Farming is what makes Wisconsin – Wisconsin. It’s critical to do all that we can to continue the farming tradition of our state,” said Kerkman. “Dairy Farming is one of our states greatest traditions and I will continue to stand up for the industry and pursue issues to help farmers in their endeavors.”

The Dairy Business Association of Wisconsin is a statewide organization, of dairy producers, vendors, allied industry partners, and professionals actively working to assure that dairy producers remain an active part of Wisconsin’s economy.
