On 28 August 2017 The Country Today (Eau Claire, Wisconsin) reported:
Joe Placke has been through several transitions during his farming career -- he left his family farm operation and bought his own place in 1980; he made the switch to organic dairying between 1993 and 1996 ... After two of Joe's brothers got cancer -- one after getting sick because of being in contact with a corn insecticide -- Joe decided to give organic dairying a try. The Plackes are finding success on a smaller scale than they once operated, taking advantage of an organic pay price that is more than double what their conventional neighbors are receiving for their milk. U.S. Representative Mark Pocan, Wisconsin, heard the Plackes story Aug. 24 when he visited their farm as part of an Organic Valley 'farm discovery' tour. Pocan, who sits on the U.S. House of Representatives Appropriations Committee and the Subcommittee on Agriculture, was invited to learn more about organic agriculture since decisions he makes at the federal level could impact future agriculture-related funding.
