Gov. Walker signs ag bill in Cashton

CASHTON, Wis. (WXOW) – Governor Scott Walker made a stop in Cashton Thursday at the Farm Supply.

While there, he signed a bill which ensures agriculture businesses investing in new technology and modern facilities will benefit from the sales and use tax exemption. Walker said the bill also encourages growth in Wisconsin's $59 billion agriculture industry.

Agriculture is one of Wisconsin’s premier industries, and I am proud of the advancements and innovations we're seeing among agriculture businesses,” Governor Walker said.  “With this legislation, Wisconsin will continue to be a national leader in farming, supporting the use of new technology, as well as investments in new manufacturing equipment and building expansions.  This law is another common-sense example of our ongoing effort to reform and update state regulations to encourage economic development and government effectiveness.”

Cashton Farm Supply (CFS) was established in 1984 and is focused on organic feed manufacturing and distribution.
