Dairy manufacturers from throughout the state submitted close to 300 entries for the 2013 Wisconsin State Fair Cheese & Butter Contest, which took place June 27 at Wisconsin State Fair Park. The contest featured 25 classes.

The 2013 Grand Master Cheesemaker, along with this year's other winning cheesemakers, will be recognized during the Blue Ribbon Cheese & Butter Auction on Friday, Aug. 9, 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.
