Senator Patrick Testin Donates a Day’s Work

Wisconsin State Senator Patrick Testin (24th district) donated a day’s work at the Mosser Lee plant in Millston. Senator Testin tries to work in a constituent’s business each month. At the Company plant, he ran the stone filling machine, filling bags with the Company’s stone products, packed cartons and filled pallets.

In the afternoon, David Epstein, President took Senator Testin to one of the moss marshes where the Company’s crew was harvesting long fibered sphagnum moss.

on the job at Mosser Lee
Central Wisconsin is home to many unique products, and, I had the opportunity to work with one when I went “On the Job” at Mosser Lee in Millston, WI. Mosser Lee is a family business that thrived for decades harvesting and distributing sphagnum moss. In fact, Mosser Lee is the largest harvester of long-fibered sphagnum moss products in the United States. Though at one point it was used for dressing wounds because of its absorbent and anti-bacterial qualities, sphagnum is primarily used in horticultural or decorative applications today. I spent my day in the warehouse preparing products for shipping and enjoyed learning more about another great product of the 24th Senate District.
