Julie knows first-hand the importance of hard work and the value of agriculture to our nation. She has been a tireless advocate for Wisconsin farmers and has been endorsed by the Wisconsin Farm Bureau in her previous elections.
Growing up on a small dairy farm herself, Julie is uniquely familiar with the challenges facing family farms, from the low prices dairy farmers are receiving for milk to the difficulty in getting credit from lenders to help family farms to expand. In Wisconsin, Julie authored programs like Buy Local, Buy Wisconsin and Farm to School that build new markets for agriculture and help family farms prosper while also giving consumers access to fresh and nutritious agricultural products. In Congress, Julie will make helping family farms thrive and grow a top priority.
