Farming is a major economic driver in Central and Western Wisconsin and a way of life for many. State Senator Patrick Testin’s strong record of getting results for family farmers has earned him the endorsement of the Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation in his race for re-election.
“I’m honored to have the support of the Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation and of farmers across the 24th Senate District,” said Senator Testin. “Farming is important to the district, and farmers and their future are important to me.”
Senator Testin led the charge to reintroduce hemp farming to Wisconsin, giving farmers another crop with which to diversify. He also authored and passed bills that combat the spread of potato blight, and encourage veterans to become farmers. He helped author the proposal to create a dairy innovation hub, a major step forward for Wisconsin dairy producers. He has offered legislation to modernize the farmland preservation tax credit and increase funding for the marketing boards for cranberries and potatoes and vegetables.
