What brings you back to Wisconsin State Fair Every Year?
We look forward to coming back to the Wisconsin State Fair every year because of the competition, and the camaraderie between the exhibitors. We enjoy spending the weekend with good friends, and also seeing the visitors who come through the barn. It’s a great way to help educate people on our State’s agricultural industry.
What would you like Fairgoers and fellow competitors to know about the animal(s) you exhibit?
We take great pride in our herd, and we’ve worked very hard over the years to improve our genetics. We really enjoy our animals and we spend a great amount of our time and energy caring for them, and making sure they are healthy and happy
What is your favorite or most unforgettable Wisconsin State Fair memory?
The first year we exhibited our older children participated in the Junior Dairy Goat show, and we had the champion junior doe, and the champion and reserve champion senior does. So, in the grand champion line up, all three animals were ours. That was quite a way to start! The first year we won Best Senior Doe in Show was also very special. In 2019 we had both Junior Best Doe in Show and Senior Best Doe in Show. That was very exciting!
What is something you do every year at Wisconsin State Fair?
Every year our grown children come to the Fair while we are there exhibiting. It’s a great time to get together and share memories of all of the years they were there with us. Our young grandchildren are now joining us in the showring while we are there.
