State Fair Cheese & Butter contest winners announced

June 30, 2014 | 0 comments

Dairy manufacturers from throughout the state submitted nearly 350 entries for the 2014 Wisconsin State Fair Cheese & Butter Contest, which took place June 26 at Wisconsin State Fair Park. The contest featured 26 classes.

The 2014 Grand Master Cheesemaker, along with this year's other winning cheesemakers, will be recognized during the Blue Ribbon Cheese & Butter Auction on Friday, August 8, at Wisconsin State Fair Park. The Blue Ribbon Cheese & Butter Auction, which features the sale of the blue-ribbon entries, is a fundraiser for the Wisconsin State Fair Dairy Promotion Board. Auction proceeds fund scholarships for students pursuing dairy-related degrees and support the House of Moo dairy education center, as well as the Wisconsin State Fair milking demonstrations.
