Stuff I read about this week that you should care about 2/18/2018
“Maybe we’ll get it next year.” Dairy farmers out shopping
Dairy farmers depend on the price of milk to make a living. However, the price of milke has been dropping over the last year, and might continue doing so. This has put a lot of farmers in a tough spot, and budgets are getting tighter and stricter. It’s even caused some farmers to go out of business. I make a motion that we all buy an extra gallon of milk and buy double what the yogurt special is in store.
“I just wanna lose 3 pounds.” Me
Regina George would love all of the low calorie ice cream options that are out there today. Right now, Halo Top rules the market with their low calorie/low sugar/high protein options. However, Ben and Jerry are developing a rival product. Moo-phoria is going to be about 100 calories less than the average Halo Top product… perfect for anyone who is looking to lose 3 pounds. Apparently, it’s coming to stores near you, soon.
“Kids are the future. Our future.” Adventure Capital and Land O’Lakes
Adventure Capital (AdCap) and Land O’Lakes put on the 2018 Fuel Up! Innovation Challenge. This challenge brought out 68 Wisconsin and Minnesota students. They learned about entrepreneurship and careers in agriculture, and how they could have a future in the industry. The students presented ideas on how they can better promote agriculture to their classmates and peers, and the best ideas were named winner. Winners were given money so that they could bring their ideas to life… pretty sweet. After all was said and done, about $110,000 was given to these students and the program.
