Nunes: Spring into Wisconsin agriculture
2021 Alice in Dairyland, Julia Nunes, stands knee-deep in bog of cranberries.
Agriculture is a diverse and vibrant industry in Wisconsin. It contributes $104.8 billion to our state economy and provides more than 435,000 jobs in a wide variety of different fields (no pun intended!). Wisconsin also leads the nation in the production of cheese, cranberries, mink pelts, snap beans, corn for silage, milk goats, and dry whey, not to mention being among the top U.S. states for many other commodities.
