Winners Named in WDE Champion Dairy Product Contest
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 08/29/2008

Land O' Lakes Dairy Foods of Kiel was selected as the Cheese and Butter Grand Champion, and Dean Foods of Indiana won the Grade A & Ice Cream area of the World Dairy Expo Championship Dairy Product Contest. This year's event, sponsored by the Wisconsin Dairy Products Association, received a record number of 405 entries for cheese, butter, fluid milk, yogurt, cottage cheese, ice cream, sour cream, sherbet, buttermilk, sour cream dips, whipping cream, dried whey and creative/innovative products from throughout the United States.

"It is extremely gratifying to see how dairy manufacturers have embraced this contest," said WDPA Director Brad Legreid. "Due to the tremendous support from dairy companies throughout North America, the World Dairy Expo Championship Dairy Product Contest has averaged an amazing 30-percent annual rate of growth over its first six years."

Judging was held on Tuesday at UW-Madison's Babcock Hall, and August 27-28 at the Madison Area Technical College Culinary School. These locations proved to be very successful venues for the contest judging.

The next step is the contest's auction, which will be held at World Dairy Expo in Madison. That's where all the top place winners will be auctioned off, with a portion of the proceeds being used to fund the Dr. Robert Bradley Scholarship Fund.

For more information on the contest and auction please call 608-836-3336.
