Youth from Door and Kewaunee Counties are bringing home plenty of awards from this year’s Wisconsin State Fair. In the barns, the Kewaunee County Dairy Project had a lot of success, boasting several grand champions and reserve champions in their respective classes. Algoma High School Senior Megan Moede was the biggest winner, exhibiting the Supreme Champion Cow and Grand Champion Bred and Owned Cow. Moede says having the best cow in the state across all breeds was great, but having it bred and owned from her family’s farm two years in a row makes it even better.
While the Kewaunee County Sheep Project boasted the best educational display and Savannah Bailey’s Grand Champion Ewe, Sturgeon Bay’s Jadacey Teska brought home her state fair hardware a different way. Teska earned the Judge and Fan Favorite Award in the Wisconsin State Fair’s junior amateur talent competition.
