DAILY WISCONSIN

Big Dairy has a plan

The goal of the 30×20 Initiative is to “(i)mprove the long-term viability of Wisconsin’s dairy industry through services to achieve an annual milk production of 30 billion pounds by 2020 to meet the growing demand of the marketplace,” reads the 30×20 initiative on the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection site.

This means bigger Dairy operations, and a government-sponsored means of vectoring liquid cow manure into Wisconsin streams, lakes and aquifers (from which a majority of regions get their drinking water).

Wisconsin politicians are too cowed by the Dairy Business Association, a repulsive lot, to oppose the 30×20 plan that is completely market-driven and does mention one word about water, literally not one word, not one word about the environment, and not one word about families’ health from Ecoli and other pathogens directed into Wisconsin waters.
