If you are in Wisconsin this week, keep your eyes peeled for some Iowa Public Television vehicles.
It is not a cross-border invasion of our public TV station taking over yours, but a remote production of the longest-running agri-business TV show “Market to Market.”
Much of the IPTV crew is on the road today heading for Madison. The show will record Wednesday and air Friday. The Market crew is working on a grant that’s helping bring the show to 4 states. A show already has aired from Shenandoah. Kansas and Nebraska will also see our crew make the trip.
Here’s part of the release from the University of Madison.

Jan. 13, 2010
“Market to Market,” the nation’s longest-running agribusiness news show, will host a rural economic summit on Wednesday, Jan. 20, immediately following the Wisconsin Agricultural Economic Outlook Forum.
This summit, the second in a series examining the impact of the economic recession in rural America, will include an expert panel and a town-hall discussion focusing on the economic challenges confronting America’s dairy industry.
