Dairy drives Wisconsin; ‘America’s Dairyland’ should stay on license plates
GREEN BAY, Wis. (Nov. 3, 201) — Today, the Dairy Business Association sent a letter to all members of the Wisconsin Legislature in response to proposed legislation by state Rep. Scott Allen that would do away with “America’s Dairyland” as the slogan on Wisconsin motor vehicle license plates.
Mike North, president of the dairy group, wrote in the letter:
“We have a brand. It is viewed positively by the overwhelming majority of people. We have spent more than a century and a lot effort and money to create this brand. It does not make sense to back away from it. At a minimum, we should be quietly thankful. Even better, we should do more to strengthen our brand. Therefore, at a minimum, we ask that you oppose this proposed legislation. Even better, let’s get creative with what the Legislature can do to further strengthen our strong and dynamic dairy community.”
