Wisconsin State Fair Cheese & Butter Contest

June 28, 2012 | 0 comments

WEST ALLIS Dairy manufacturers from throughout the state submitted close to 300 entries for the 2012 Wisconsin State Fair Cheese & Butter Contest, which took place June 21 at Wisconsin State Fair Park. The contest featured 26 classes, including four new classes — Aged Cheddar, Smoked Cheese, Flavored Goat Cheese and Latin American Cheese. The 2012 Grand Master Cheesemaker, along with this year’s other winning cheesemakers, will be recognized during the Blue Ribbon Cheese & Butter Auction on Friday, Aug. 10, 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.
