WVDL Plays Key Role in Wisconsin’s Dairy Exports

 

Wisconsin Dairy Exports Grow in 2013

The WVDL performs over 500,000 tests each year for the dairy and genetics industry.  Results are used by exporters to assure customers that Wisconsin products (live cattle, semen, embryos etc.,) are safe to import.

Export Cow Wisconsin exported more than $170 million of dairy exports in the first half of 2013, 23 percent higher than last year. Gov. Scott Walker announced that dairy products were the state’s most valuable agriculture exports so far in 2013. Wisconsin now ranks fourth in the country for the value of dairy exports.

“The growth in our dairy industry is due to the hard work of the farmers and processors who produce quality and safe dairy products,” Walker said in a news release.  “Wisconsin is quickly growing beyond being America’s Dairy Land.  Our agriculture industry continues to be a strong cornerstone of our state’s economy, and the overall increase of Wisconsin exports is good for our economy and the hardworking employees who help produce great products.”
