It’s Wisconsin, it’s agriculture, it’s Alice

If you want to meet a lot of people at Wisconsin Farm Technology Days, just walk around the grounds with Alice in Dairyland. Everyone wants to meet Wisconsin’s agricultural ambassador and Cheryl O’Brien is happy to talk to them. “Alice” spends all three days at the show talking to people about agriculture. “I do speeches and presentations and visit with the media and help make that connection with agriculture as a business across Wisconsin.”

As Alice, Cheryl will speak to high school students across the state over the next year about the job opportunities in agriculture and visiting Farm Technology Days helps build her case. “There are over 300 careers in agriculture across Wisconsin,” and beyond that she adds, “for every one job that is created by agriculture there is another 1.3 jobs generated somewhere else in the state.”
