2015 MASDA Annual Meeting

MASDA Banner

The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection is hosting the annual meeting of the Midwestern Association of State Departments of Agriculture (MASDA). The event will be held June 21-24, 2015, at the Concourse Hotel in Madison, Wisconsin.

Commissioners, Secretaries and Directors of state departments of agriculture from twelve Midwestern states, including Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota and Wisconsin, will visit Wisconsin. This gives us an opportunity to showcase Wisconsin’s innovative food and agritourism industry to the top agricultural leaders in the Midwest.

The annual meeting will include speakers, roundtable discussions and agricultural tours in Madison and surrounding communities. The meeting will include discussions on national agriculture policies in areas such as food safety, land use and conservation, agricultural business development, animal health and international market issues. We look forward to hosting.
