Ag Day at the Capitol will be held virtually on March 24. This event is the largest gathering of farmers from across the state representing a variety of farm groups to learn more about issues impacting Wisconsin agriculture and meet with their state legislators.
“This year’s virtual event provides every farmer and agriculturist the opportunity to participate from the comfort of their home or office,” said Wisconsin Farm Bureau President Kevin Krentz. “This unique event is an opportunity for farmers and agriculturists from all walks of life to stand together and ask state legislators for their support on key issues.”
The virtual event will be held free of charge, but pre-registration is required. The registration deadline is March 17. Anyone interested in attending can sign up at bit.ly/2021AgDayReg.
Issue briefings will take place from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. followed by pre-scheduled, virtual legislative office visits.

Co-sponsors of the event, with Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation, include the Dairy Business Association, Professional Dairy Producers of Wisconsin, Wisconsin Cattlemen’s Association, Wisconsin Corn Growers Association, Wisconsin Hemp Alliance, Wisconsin Horse Council, Wisconsin Pork Association, Wisconsin Potato & Vegetable Growers Association, Wisconsin Soybean Association and the Wisconsin State Cranberry Growers Association.
