The Chippewa Economic Development Corporation works tirelessly to support and promote the Chippewa Valley’s dairy industry, just as dairy farmers work tirelessly to provide the world with the Wisconsin dairy products we know and love. We have helped farmers explore exporting opportunities, improved their supply chain, and assisted in mentoring programs. We have even helped farmers obtain loans to implement automation equipment. The economic impact that agriculture has on the Chippewa Valley cannot be overemphasized.
June is National Dairy Month, which has been nationally recognized since 1937. The Wisconsin dairy industry generates $45.6 billion each year, making Wisconsin the nation’s highest producer and exporter of dairy. The Chippewa County agricultural industry contributes over $650 million to the local economy. This month, let’s thank our dairy farmers for keeping the state’s economy moving and for producing the products that Wisconsin is world-famous for.
