MADISON – Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation President Bill Bruins issued the following statement regarding Governor Scott Walker’s four appointees to the Board of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection.
“The Wisconsin Farm Bureau is very pleased with the appointments of Pamela Garvey, Miranda Leis and Mark Schleitwiler, as well as the reappointment of Andrew Diercks to the Board of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection.
This important citizen board will be well served by a poultry farmer, potato and vegetable grower, dairy farmer and cheesemaker. The professional backgrounds of these four fine individuals mirror the diversity that exists in Wisconsin agriculture.
In addition to production and processing expertise, each also brings a wealth of marketing experience. Their perspectives will be invaluable as Wisconsin works to grow its $59 billion agricultural economy.
Farm Bureau also greatly appreciates the years of service that Cynthia Brown, Mike Krutza and Brian Rude gave to the board.”
