We are partnering with the Dairy Business Association, Clean Wisconsin, and The Nature Conservancy because it’s time to rethink how we protect our water and support our farms. If not always on the same side of policy debates, our groups have had a long history of advocating for these issues. Wisconsin has made progress, but we need to do better.

These groups have come together to find common ground, and to push for bold changes from state decision-makers — changes that will significantly accelerate improvements to protect both our water resources and our farms. We cannot address clean water or the future of farming in Wisconsin as standalone issues. They are challenges that must be met together if we are to have a future where our state has clean water and a resilient agricultural community.
