Dane County Set To Host

Dane County is set to host the 75th Alice in Dairyland Finals in celebration of the program’s unparalleled agricultural advocacy and the selection of Wisconsin’s next agricultural ambassador.

One of the most recognizable spokespersons of Wisconsin agriculture, “Alice in Dairyland” is a full-time public relations professional who works for the Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection. Her role is to meet with statewide media, youth organizations, civic groups, and a wide array of local events to facilitate a deeper understanding of the state’s agricultural industries. Agriculture is Wisconsin’s top industry – generating $104.8 billion annually.

“There is no other program like Alice in Dairyland in the nation,” stated Jill Makovec, 75th Alice in Dairyland Steering Committee Chair. “We want everyone to join us in celebrating and recognizing both Alice AND agriculture – two extremely valuable assets to the state of Wisconsin.”

The public is welcome to join the celebration as Amber Cafferty – Fountain City, Amelia Hayden – Sharon, Courtney Moser – Westby, Taylor Schaefer – Franksville, Samantha Schuessler – Antigo, and Charitee Seebecker – Mauston compete for the 75th Alice in Dairyland honors.

The Impromptu Question and Answer Session will take place at Badger Farms in Cottage Grove on Friday, May 20. The fun begins with a social featuring favorite fair foods at 5 p.m.

On Saturday, May 21, attendees are invited to enjoy a red-carpet reception and social hour at 5:15 p.m. before the Banquet and Finale.
