On November 16th we welcomed Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Reporter Rick Barrett, and PBS Milwaukee Producer Maryann Lazarski as they addressed their new collaborative documentary, "America's Dairyland at the Crossroads."
Wisconsin's dairy history is an essential part of the state’s culture and an economic engine that generates $45 billion a year, much of that sustaining Main Streets in rural Wisconsin. But it continues to be at risk. Why? That's the question Milwaukee PBS producers examine in a new, hour-long documentary "America's Dairyland at the Crossroads."
The documentary is produced in partnership with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel with support from PBS Frontline and the Pulitzer Center. Maryann Lazarski and Rick Barrett discuss their work that included a look at how COVID impacted dairy farmers as well as the production of this film.
