MADISON, Wis. – The Wisconsin Corn Growers Association (WCGA) applauds the appointment of Doug Rebout to the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) Board.
“Doug is a natural fit for the DATCP Board,” says Zeb Zuehls, WCGA Vice President. “He has led the Wisconsin Corn Growers Association for the last three years, is a devoted volunteer and proven leader and will represent all of agriculture to the highest standard.”
