Farmers from across the Wisconsin are leaving their cattle for a few days to head to New York for the ’Dairy Together Movement.’
Paul Adams’ dairy farm has been functioning in Eleva, near Eau Claire, since 1872.
Adams said he’s had industry concerns all of his life, especially the “come and go” of industry pricing.
Two years ago he took a 25-percent cut in pay and said it has been nearly impossible to survive.
The trip to New York is organized by the Wisconsin Farmers Union and Agri Mark Cooperative.
“Personal goal is to meet with some people that might have the same ideas and get ideas on what can or will work. Maybe now we might have enough going on that we can all get together and do something positive for the country,” said Adams.
Adams leaves bright and early tomorrow morning, then returns with the rest of the Wisconsin farmers on Tuesday.
