Last week, 40 UW-Madison faculty, academic staff and administrators took a swing through the state known as the Wisconsin Idea Seminar. The five-day, annual traveling study tour through various parts of Wisconsin, included a stop at the UW Emmons Blaine Dairy in Arlington. University Communications Photographer Bryce Richter recorded that visit, which herd manager Mike Peters and dairy science faculty member Amy Stanton helped host. Participants will also visit Aldo Leopold’s shack near Baraboo, meet with the Wausau Area Hmong Mutual Association, learn first-hand about the School of the Arts in Rhinelander, and tour the Lac du Flambeau Indian reservation. Other stops include Great Lakes Kraut in Bear Creek, the Red Granite Correctional Institution, the Milwaukee Collegiate Academy and Marquette University.
