Governor reminds fair-goers drought not insurmountable

Posted:

WEST ALLIS (WKOW) -- The Wisconsin State Fair's 11-day run featured a pep talk from Governor Walker on coping with this summer's drought.

Walker told fair visitors Thursday the parched conditions are gradually giving way to some wet weather and agricultural successes.

"Up to 25,000 acres in Central Wisconsin is going to be planted last week," Walker said. "That will help our dairy farmers who are short of crop in the southern part of the state. Just like the fair bringing people together, the farming community is stepping up to bring people together."
