AgSource Miss Q winners recognized at Dane County Fair

Wisconsin is famous for making dairy products, but it takes hard work and superior care to produce high-quality milk.

The Miss Q Contest, which is sponsored by AgSource Cooperative Services, rewards junior dairy exhibitors for excellent dairy practices. Three youth were recognized Friday, July 18, at the Dane County Fair. Lacey Schleicher, Columbus; Josh Opsal, Blue Mounds; and Whitney Brown, Belleville, were each awarded the Miss Q title and given the opportunity to sell one, half-gallon of milk at the AgSource Miss Q Auction, held during the fair.

Cows on a processed DHI testing program that have completed a first, second, third or fourth-or-higher lactation were eligible for the award. The cow in each lactation class with the highest milk quality, determined by the lowest average linear score (somatic cell count), was declared the winner. Proceeds from the auction were awarded to the winning youth exhibitors to assist with further development of their dairy project or finance their post secondary education.

Lacey Schleicher earned the first lactation AgSource Miss Q Award. Steven Moderow with Farmers' Implement in Columbus, purchased the first-place half-gallon of milk for $600. Landmark Services Cooperative, Cottage Grove, was a contending bidder. Schleicher is the daughter of Steve and Lisa Schleicher and is a member of the DeForest Handy Helpers 4-H Club.

Josh Opsal, a member of the Mt. Horeb FFA and son of Troy Opsal and Jane Sarbacker, captured the second lactation award. His quality milk pitcher was purchased for $425. Tony Schlimgen, Schlimgen Farms, was the successful bidder, with contending bidding by Landmark Services Cooperative.

The AgSource Miss Q third lactation winner was Whitney Brown, daughter of Brian and Yogi Brown. Gerry and Jan Brown, Sunburst Dairy, purchased Whitney's half-gallon of quality milk for $550. Landmark Services Cooperative, Cottage Grove, was a contending bidder. Brown is a member of the Belleville Busy Beavers 4-H Club.

A special thank you goes out to the buyers and to Jeff Geier with Landmark Services Cooperative in Cottage Grove., who provided a $600 cash donation, to be split evenly among the exhibitors.

Ray Kuehl, from Ray Kuehl Auction Services of Waunakee, served as auctioneer for the event.
