Agriculture is a vital part of the economy in nearly every Wisconsin county, whether urban or rural. Family-owned farms, food processors, and agriculture-related businesses generate thousands of jobs and millions of dollars of economic activity while contributing to local income and tax revenues. The economic impact varies from county to county as do the commodities. While dairy is the number one commodity in most counties, other top commodities include grain, poultry and vegetables. Statewide, agriculture is a $104.8 billion industry and provides 413,500 jobs. Information about each county’s top commodities, the number of people employed by agriculture-related businesses and the economic impact is available in these two-page reports.
