Roger Krohn from Agropur in Luxemburg is going out on top after the Wisconsin State Fair Dairy Promotions Board held its 2022 Dairy Products Contest on Thursday.
Krohn, the Master Cheesemaker who is retiring at the end of the month, won for his smoked provolone and provolone cheese entries. His nephew, Pat Doell, came home with his own stack of awards. Doell’s entry for mozzarella cheese won first place in the category, while his provolone came in second place and his smoked provolone finished in third behind Krohn.
Ben Shibler of Ron’s Wisconsin Cheese and Pagel’s Ponderosa was recognized for his snack cheese. His garlic and dill cheese curds took third place in the flavored cheese curd category. His mozzarella cheese whips took third behind Doell in the mozzarella category and his string cheese also took third place in the category of the same name. His highest placed offering was his jalapeno mozzarella cheese whips, which took second in the pepper cheese category.
