Logan Voigts of Lafayette County and Kristen Broege from Rock County were named Outstanding Holstein Boy and Girl at the group's annual state convention.

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

The Dodge County Junior Dairybowl Team has 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. Members were also recognized for speaking, scrapbook, photography, advertising and dairy production awards during the weekend.

They join the board's second-year members Zach Tolzman, Iowa County; Nicole Pralle, Clark County; Joseph Opsal, Dane County; and Katie Bauer, Waupaca County.
