And now a final Wisconsin agriculture news story for tonight. A new bipartisan bill in the state legislature would require two state agencies, the Department of Agriculture and Veterans Affairs, to assist state veterans interested in going into farming. The program would also support vets already working in agriculture and place a special logo on foods grown by veterans.
