Dunn County Farm Bureau recently donated the Wisconsin Farm Bureau Ag in the Classroom book of year to the Menomonie Public Library. Time for Cranberries, educates students about the state’s cranberry industry by highlighting the process, technology and traditions involved and is written by Wisconsin native Lisl H. Detlefsen.
This book will be used to provide the public with an understanding of how their food is produced. Ag in the Classroom seeks to provide basic information on our nation's largest industry: agriculture. The goal of the Ag in the Classroom program is to help individuals gain a greater awareness of the role of agriculture in the economy and society, so that they may become citizens who support wise agricultural policies.
In Dunn County, agriculture provides $806 million in economic activity and provides jobs to nearly 3,900 residents.
