MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin has a new state conservationist for the first time in 18 years.

The USDA has named Jimmy Bramblett to the post. He’ll oversee the agency’s 55 offices throughout the Badger State, plus a budget that includes $50 million a year in federal conservation aid to Wisconsin farmers and producers.

Bramblett has worked in numerous USDA conservation posts. He was most recently the national chief of staff to regional conservationists in Washington.

Bramblett is Wisconsin’s 9th state conservation since the agency began in 1935. He replaces Pat Leavenworth, who retired last year after almost two decades serving the state.
