This study assesses the contribution of agriculture to Wisconsin’s economy. Building on the analysis of Deller (2004), we use data from 2007 in this study. By using 2007 as the year of analysis, we are able to build on the current Census of Agriculture, which provides detailed data for 2007. We also explore changes in aggregate measures of agriculture from 1990 to 2007, and more detailed assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of on-farm production and food processing, from 2001 to 2007.
