Wisconsin's agricultural exports in the third quarter rose 37% compared to 2009.

Wisconsin governor Jim Doyle delivered upbeat news to farmers in his state, announcing that state agricultural exports increased by 37 percent compared to the third quarter in 2009. The news comes as U.S. farming incomes increase as worldwide demand for food moves upward.

Through the first 9 months of 2010, Wisconsin's agricultural exports totaled $1.71 billion: they were delivered to over 130 countries, illustrating the variety in farm goods. Agricultural exports consist of such diverse offerings as grains like corn and rice, and dairy and eggs. Canada, Mexico and Japan were the top destinations for Wisconsin's farm goods.

Governor Doyle was proud of his state's success, emphasizing the hard work taken "to invest in Wisconsin's diverse farmers and producers." Wisconsin's agricultural goods, Doyle affirmed, "are known throughout the world for their high quality and innovation." Ultimately, Doyle believes that Wisconsin's farmers will "grow our agricultural economy and create jobs."

Wisconsin's agricultural industry is incredibly important to the state, supplying one in ten jobs. The governor's office predicts continued rising farm output. Perhaps, the state's farmers will need more John Deere equipment to handle the uptick in business.
