EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (AP) -- The United State Department of Agriculture is holding a job forum in western Wisconsin this week.

Other participants include an official from USDA Rural Development Wisconsin, the president of the Chippewa Valley Technical College and director of the Farm Service Agency in Wisconsin.
