The Wisconsin state quarter coloring page shows an image of the quarter issued in 2004 that represents the state of Wisconsin.
Wisconsin, which became the 30th state on May 29, 1848, is moving "forward" with a farming theme for its quarter design.
A statewide vote selected the "Agriculture/Dairy/Barns" theme over
the other two candidates, "Scenic Wisconsin" and "Early Exploration and Cultural Interaction."
Wisconsin can be called the dairy capital of the world. It has more milk cows than any other state and produces more than 15 percent
of the nation's milk. More than a million cows live on Wisconsin's 17,000 dairy farms, and each cow produces an average of 17,306 gallons
of milk each year! The state also makes more than 350 different kinds of cheese and is a major corn-growing state.
Wisconsin, wanting to be a leader among the states, adopted "Forward" as the state motto in 1851.
