The latest numbers from the Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection show Wisconsin’s agricultural exports for the first quarter of 2014 were 25 percent above year-ago levels. The value of dairy product exports jumped 63 percent to $140 million. Bovine genetics increased 81 percent to $19 million.

Wisconsin leads the nation in the export of bovine genetics, ginseng, sweet corn and mink fur skins and we are second in cheese, whey and cranberries.

State Ag Secretary Ben Brancel has made exports a priority and he is seeing a lot of interest from companies of all sizes.
