Bruce Jones preps foreign agricultural attachés for tour of Wisconsin

Bruce Jones presents information about the status of Wisconsin agriculture to members of the foreign ag attache group.

On Monday morning CALS ag economist Bruce Jones spoke with a group of 26 foreign agricultural attachés from around the globe about the status of Wisconsin agriculture, helping to prepare them for an exciting week-long ag-focused tour of the state.

The tour, arranged by the U.S. Foreign Agricultural Service with help from WIDATCP, is designed to introduce the visitors to diverse aspects of the state’s agricultural enterprise, including dairy, cranberries, biofuels, soybeans, urban/organic systems and more.

John Ferrick, director of CALS International Programs, will be attending parts of the tour, including a stop at CALS’ Arlington Ag Research Station later this week.
