A food we relish: Learn about cranberries at Nov. 18 Wisconsin’s Best presentation


Alumni, faculty, staff, students and friends of the College of the Agricultural and Life Sciences are encouraged to participate in the Fall 2009 CALS Lecture Series: Wisconsin’s Best. This series focuses on Wisconsin food products that are industry leaders in research or production. University and private industry experts will provide an insider’s look into various aspects of the development, cultivation, processing and marketing of these food staples.

Join us on November 18 at 4:45p.m. in the Ebling Symposium Center for this semester’s third lecture and learn about cranberries. Wisconsin is a true champion when it comes to this small, but tastefully tart fruit, as it is the state’s most valuable fruit crop at $115 million. Join Executive Director of the Wisconsin State Cranberry Growers Association, Tom Lochner, as he leads guests through the in-and-outs of the cranberry industry. A complementary cranberry product sample will be served following the lecture.

This event is free and open to the public. To ensure adequate food is available, registration is requested by November 16, 2009.
