I thought your story on the SILT farm, now managed by the Zierke couple, was especially informative and well written. It is such a positive movement in the Driftless, landowners finding mutually beneficial ways to transition their farmland to young people with energy and ideas. You captured their enthusiasm but also their path of preparation, for others who may seek to follow.
Benjamin Klimesh’s article on the dairy industry struggles was very revealing and alarming; it hurts to realize that a precious product has to be wasted due to supply chain issues. The article shows good investigative journalism. This is an urgent issue which our state government could well focus on and act to correct.
Many thanks to both of you for sharing important information.
