Farmers hope Evers helps restore family operations

By Tim Kowols       

The director representing Door and Kewaunee counties on the Wisconsin Farmers Union board hopes the election of Governor-elect Tony Evers help reverse the trend of family farms disappearing in Wisconsin. According to ABC News, Wisconsin is losing one and a half dairy farms a day and the western half of the state is leading the nation in agricultural bankruptcy claims. Rick Adamski represents 21 counties including Door and Kewaunee on the Wisconsin Farmers Union Board of Directors. He points some of the blame for lagging milk prices on Governor Scott Walker's Grow Wisconsin Dairy 30x20 program, which helped farmers expand production that is exceeding demand. Adamski says he hopes the new administration places more focus on people than capital.



Despite his lack of an agricultural background, Adamski hopes Governor-elect Evers helps address the financial crisis underway in the industry caused by tariffs and other factors.
