Due to the technological advances and the ever changing world of agriculture, producers and agribusiness clientele are becoming more specialized with a need for more detailed information. UW-Extension staff needs to accommodate growers and agribusiness needs in order to deliver quality, educational programming. Therefore, seven counties in central Wisconsin have formed the Central Wisconsin Agricultural Specialization team.
The Central Wisconsin Agricultural Specialization efforts include the counties of Portage, Wood, Adams, Waushara, Green Lake, Marquette, and Juneau. Each county agricultural agent is taking on a specialization, from dairy, forage, agronomic crops, horticultural crops to financial management.
The Central Wisconsin Agricultural Specialization Team feels that this specialization will allow us to provide organized and specific educational events across Central Wisconsin. Furthermore, specialization will allow us to aid growers in becoming more profitable and competitive in today’s global market.
