Emma Vos, a junior at UW-Madison, earned second alternate on the National Jersey Queen Court.

Vos studies agricultural and applied economics and dairy science. She was the 2023 Fred Stout Experience recipient of the Jersey Marketing Service internship. She also received the Walter and Joyce Owens Family Scholarship in 2023 from the American Jersey Cattle Association. Vos hopes to promote Jersey milk as a more nutrient dense, digestible milk option for consumption. She is an advocate for getting whole milk back in schools.

Clancey Krahn of Oregon was crowned the 66th National Jersey Queen. She will represent Jersey breeders for the next year at events such as the Annual Meeting of the American Jersey Cattle Association and World Dairy Expo.

Krahn is a freshman at Linn-Benton Community College. She plans to transfer to Oklahoma State University next fall to pursue degrees in animal science and agriculture communications. Her platform as National Jersey Queen will revolve around the versatility and palatability of Jersey milk. She will help spread the message of the exceptional nutritional profile Jersey milk has compared to other milk.

Vos serves on the national court with first alternate Meganne Chapman of New York.

Chapman is a senior at the University of Akron. She studies civil engineering with the goal of pursuing a master’s degree in the field and becoming dual licensed in civil engineering and surveying. Her career choice would allow her to continue to raise Registered Jerseys on her family farm. Chapman’s platform focuses on the youth of the dairy industry. She hopes to increase the number of touchpoints Jersey youth have with producers and industry professionals. She hopes to inspire others to show the many ways to stay involved with a career in the dairy industry.

A total of six women from across the country competed for the crown.

The Charlene Nardone National Jersey Queen Fund provided scholarships of $500, $300 and $200 to the Queen and two alternates.
