Known as “The State of 10,000 Lakes”, Minnesota also hosts a diverse agricultural industry. As a leader in many agricultural categories, Minnesota Agriculture Animal Health officials collaborate to form a coalition of animal health oversight. This multi-agency approach receives wide-spread industry and public support and is affectionately referred to as the “Minnesota Model”.
