The best cow in the world calls Kewaunee County home. Mead Manor Def-Adeline Red, owned and shown by Michael and Megan Moede, won several awards in the International Red and White Cow Show during this weekend’s World Dairy Expo. The weekend was capped off Saturday night when it was named the Supreme Champion of the Junior Show as the best cow out of seven different breeds. If getting the spotlight on them during the show at the Alliant Energy Center was not special enough, Michael Moede says having raised Mead Manor Def-Adeline Red her entire life makes the honor extra impressive.
A senior Dairy Science major at the University of Wisconsin, Moede says what separated his cow from the others was its size and balance along with its udder. The World Dairy Expo not only brought thousands to Madison over the weekend but also some groups to Kewaunee County farms during the week to see their operations and the technology they use.
