    I just returned from a trip to Wisconsin (eastern). What was once a dairy region is now almost all cash crops: corn, winter wheat, soy, alfalfa. I saw no grazing by dairy cows, although I didn’t make a great survey. Lots of the soy had quite the weed load, almost certainly due to poor spraying practices and/or resistant weeds. For the good of that fine farmland, maybe backgrounding some beef and grazing might be a good idea instead of soybeans for export.
