Poor economy has planners rethinking dairy school

MARSHFIELD, Wis. (AP)--The poor economy has organizers scaling back plans for a dairy school in Marathon County in central Wisconsin.

The Dairyland State Academy Board and Northcentral Technical College are partnering on the project.

DSA Board president Dale Heise says the poor economy has made investors hesitant about the $6 million project, particularly since a site hasn't yet been chosen.

The school would still have a dairy farm where students could get hands-on experience in farming and management.

But organizers are discussing scaling back and having fewer cows and less land and equipment. They also may buy an existing farm instead of building new.

Marathon County officials have not yet decided whether they will commit $1 million to the project as requested.
