Wisconsin Jersey Spring Spectacular Returns

The 24th Annual Wisconsin Jersey Spring Spectacular will return to the Vernon County Fairgrounds in Viroqua, Wis. May 5-6.

Registered Jersey cattle from across the Midwest will circle the ring as breeders distinguish themselves in the industry. In past years, the event welcomed up to 500 attendees with cattle from Wisconsin, Iowa, Minnesota, Illinois, and beyond.

Matt Sloan will judge the 2023 show. Entry forms will be released shortly. There will be a $20 exhibitor fee and a $10 per animal charge for entries postmarked on or before April 21. Entries postmarked April 22-28 will be $25. Following that deadline, the price will rise to $100, and exhibitors can pay at the show.

Showmanship begins on Friday, May 5 at 3:00 p.m. The cattle show will start with winter heifers at
9:00 a.m. on Saturday, May 6. The Wisconsin Jersey Spring Spectacular will include a silent auction
that contributes to the operation of the show. The committee is also accepting sponsors from individuals, organizations, and businesses.

The Wisconsin Jersey Spring Spectacular is organized solely by volunteers. For more information about donations or entries, contact Karla Peterson by phone/text at 608-606-1818, or email at karlap2008@live.com.
