COLEMAN — The Coleman branch of Marinette County Consolidated Library System, Marinette County Extension and Marinette County Dairy Promotions are sponsoring an opportunity to learn about and partake in Wisconsin’s dairy industry. This free two-part event will take place Wednesday, within the Coleman Library, located at 123 W Main St.

Starting at noon, Agriculture Extension Agent Scott Reuss will be leading a discussion of the economic status of agriculture and the economic impacts which the agriculture industry has within Marinette County. The base of the discussion will be the newly released 2017 Census of Agriculture data, along with 2019 cost of production and projected loss/revenue for the primary agricultural commodities raised in the county.

After the discussion, everyone will be able to have a free ice cream sundae and continue to ask Reuss other questions about the dairy industry, agricultural production in Marinette County, or any other agricultural/horticultural questions. The ice cream social will continue from 12:45 to 1:30 p.m., also within the library.

The event is being held in honor of June Dairy Month, with the ice cream and supplies being provided by the dairy producers of Marinette County and the Dairy Farmers of Wisconsin.

If people want more information about this event, they may contact Tina at the Coleman library at 920-897-2400 or Scott Reuss at 715-732-7510 or email to

The volunteers of the Marinette County Dairy Promotions also hope to see everyone at the upcoming Marinette County Breakfast on the Farm. This year’s breakfast event is being held June 30 from 7:30 to noon at Dan, Sue, Eric and Jamie Van De Walle’s dairy farm on Red School Road in the Town of Grover.
