Where does agriculture support the most jobs in Wisconsin?

Last week’s quiz featured a study by Steven Deller and David Williams that revealed that agriculture supports over half of all employment in Lafayette County, Wisconsin. The study also reported that at least one-third of all employment in six other Wisconsin counties (Clark, Richland, Vernon, Buffalo, Marquette, and Taylor) is attributable to agriculture.

This study defines the total employment impact of agriculture as the number of people employed on farms and in food processing plus the jobs created when farmers, food processors, and their employees spend money locally. Using this definition, in what Wisconsin county does agriculture support the most jobs?
