Zach Tolzman of Iowa County and Allison Breunig from Dane County were named Outstanding Holstein Boy and Girl at the group's annual state convention.

Fourteen Young Distinguished Junior Member winners and 12 Twelve & Under Recognition finalists were also honored at the conference.

For the second straight year, the Manitowoc/Calumet County Junior Dairybowl Team won the Junior Division of their competition, with Shawano County taking top honors for the Senior Division. Both teams will compete at the national level this summer.
