Tranel Blasts Secretary Perdue

Wisconsin Assemblyman Travis Tranel of Cuba City is not happy about comments made by U.S. Department of Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue regarding small farm operations. During a visit to Wisconsin last week, Perdue condemned the future of small family farms by saying they cannot survive as big farms take over. Tranel has a dairy farm in rural Cuba City. While he says he appreciates Perdue coming to Wisconsin, he has to be reminded of the importance of all types of Ag, whether that’s big, small, conventional or organic. Tranel has sent a letter to Perdue expressing his outrage over the comments.
