Schulz Takes Lead On Dairy Promotion

The Wisconsin State Fair Dairy Promotion Board is pleased to announce the recent addition of Ann Schulz as Board Coordinator. Schulz will manage the Real Wisconsin Cheese Grill, Blue Ribbon Dairy Products Auction and Contest, Dairyland Shake Shop, Dairyland Youth Celebration, and will work with Program Assistant Liz Matzke to support the board.  

Schulz brings a strong communication, public relations and dairy background to the board. For over 12 years, she worked in various communications and marketing roles for Alltech and Kuhn North America. She grew up on her family’s dairy and seed farm in Cedar Grove, Wisconsin and currently works with her husband and his family on their dairy farm near Mayville, Wisconsin.  

“The Wisconsin State Fair Dairy Promotion Board is excited to bring Ann on board as the coordinator. Her industry experience along with her passion for the dairy industry will be a tremendous asset to the board,” said Nicole Barlass, Board President.  

The Wisconsin State Fair Dairy Promotion Board is made up of individuals passionate about promoting Wisconsin’s $45.6 billion dairy industry during the Wisconsin State Fair. Providing educational opportunities for attendees with its interactive Dairy Lane exhibit and cow and goat milking demonstrations while also managing the Real Wisconsin Cheese Grill and Blue Ribbon Dairy Products Auction, the board helps fund scholarships for students pursuing careers in the dairy industry, and offers volunteer opportunities for dairy youth to get involved.
