Congratulations to Paul Dietmann, new Deputy Secretary of the Wisconsin DATCP

Paul Dietmann, a regular speaker for Stateline Farm Beginnings, was recently appointed Deputy Secretary of the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade, and Consumer Protection!   "Paul's work ethic and his commitment to service will serve him, the agency and the people of Wisconsin well," commented Randy Romanski, Secretary of the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection. "He brings great energy to everything he does, and he is an important part of the team here at DATCP," he said. Read the full DATCP Press Release for more information.   Here at the Learning Center, we couldn't agree more. Paul has been a speaker at Stateline Farm Beginnings since 2008 and is quick to offer students assistance with their business plans...above and beyond the call of duty.   Paul was previously the director of the Wisconsin Farm Center, providing critical services to those in need in rural Wisconsin while also working to grow the next generation of farmers. He was also a board member of MOSES (Midwest Organic and Sustainable Education Service) and served nearly 11 years as a University of Wisconsin-Extension Agricultural Agent and Department Head in Sauk County.  In 2004, Paul was selected as the national winner of the Excellence in Farm and Ranch Financial Management Award presented by the National Association of County Agricultural Agents.   Congratulations to Paul!
