Wisconsin Agriculture - Book

 

Wisconsin Agriculture by Jerry Apps covers the rich and diverse story of farming in the Dairy State. Wisocnsin produces much more than cows, milk and cheese. In fact, the Badger state is one of the most diverse agricultural states in the nation. The author examines everything from the fundamental influences of landscape and weather to complex matters of ethnic and pioneer settlement patterns, changing technology, agricultural research and education, and government regulations and policies. Along with expected topics, such as the cranberry industry and artisan cheesemaking, this book delves into beef cattle and dairy goats, fur farming and Christmas trees, maple syrup and honey, and other specialty crops, including ginseng, hemp, cherries, sugar beets, mint, sphagnum moss, flax, and hops. The author also explores new and rediscovered farming endeavors, from aquaculture to urban farming to beekeeping, and looks to the future of farming, contemplating questions of ethical growing practices, food safety, sustainability, and the potential effects of climate change.
