At 5:30, we had three guest speakers share their agricultural knowledge and experiences. Our first speaker was Senator Howard Marklein who talked about how agriculture impacted his life, some ag policies, and future bills. The next speaker was a past Alice in Dairyland, Angela Udelhoven. She talked about her experience growing up on a family farm in Mineral Point, WI and the opportunity she had as serving as Alice in Dairyland. Our Last speakers were a newlywed couple who are young farmers and just getting started in the agricultural field. Together, they have a Dairy Farm partnered with a current Dairy Farmer who is about to retire. We got to hear about all of the good and bad times they have experience as new farmers. All of these speakers had great comments and stories to share!
