Guest: Katie Wirkus, Wisconsin's 64th Alice in Dairyland

Wisconsin's $59 billion agricultural industry is more than just good for our economy. It is good for us - providing us with a virtual smorgasbord of choices for healthy consumption. At this time of year, Something Special from Wisconsin offers abundant ideas for gifts and holiday entertaining. Katie Wirkus, Wisconsin's Alice in Dairyland, takes us on a tour of Wisconsin and highlights the products that come from the four corners of the state and parts within.

Just what does the Something Special from Wisconsin logo mean? Why is it important to buy local? What are some holiday suggestions? Where can we find a list of Wisconsin products and local businesses where we find them? Answers to these questions and the story behind the selection of this year's White House Christmas Tree - also Something Special from Wisconsin - are in this program.
