MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack says the federal government has helped hundreds of Wisconsin farms put conservation plans into effect aimed at decreasing greenhouse gas emissions.

The original agreement signed in 2009 is being renewed between the federal government and the dairy industry.

The USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service has spent more than $250 million so far.

Though no official dollar figure was announced with the deal signed Wednesday, Vilsack says he expects about the same amount of money, or more, to be invested over the next four years.
