Kohl speaks at agriculture conference, reflects on career

Posted:

ROTHSCHILD (WAOW) -- Sen. Herb Kohl stopped in Rothschild this afternoon.

Kohl spoke at the 2012 Grassworks Grazing Conference. He discussed the importance of farming and agriculture in Wisconsin.

Kohl has decided not to seek re-election this year. Today, he reflected on his 24-year career. He says his advocacy of farming is an important part of that.

"I've worked really hard to help the rural economy, the dairy industry, cattle industry," said Kohl. "We've done quite a few things to help. So I'm really, I feel proud of that."

Three Republicans and one Democrat are vying to replace Kohl next year.
