Wisconsin’s Lieutenant governor says prison inmates are helping the state meet its milk production goal.
Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch visited the Waupun Correctional Institution’s dairy farm Tuesday as part of National Dairy month. Kleefisch says inmates at the farm are helping the state reach its goal of 30 billion pounds of milk by 2020. Kleefisch says farm provides inmates with job training and life skills which cuts down on recidivism. Kleefisch says the milk and ice cream produced at Waupun are distributed to Wisconsin’s prison institutions and sold to Minnesota’s prison system.
