Wisconsin farmers go beyond dairy; experiment with hazelnuts, speciality milk

Struggling with the impact of the tariffs and low milk prices, besides no support from nature on their side, farmers in Wisconsin have had a slow 2019 harvest season. 2019 was the wettest year for Wisconsin, bringing in 41.75 inches of rain through November. Farmers are switching into areas such as dairy cattle genetics, producing specialty milk, planting hazelnut trees and alternative crops.

Dang that was a long article. Interesting though if you want to know about small dairy farms in Wisconsin. ;)

This is good for them. The tariff war showed how dependent on a single buyer they were.

I don't get the problem. It's just weather like always, right?
