The evening’s program was led by the Mistresses of Ceremonies, Jill Makovec and Nicole Breunig. They introduced the present dignitaries, cows, and award sponsors. Tim Baumgartner was in attendance as a representative for Compeer Financial, and representing International Protein Sires was Ron Sersland, owner.
Royalty from across Wisconsin attended the event as well. The royalty included Zoe Ertel, Wisconsin Holstein Association Princess; Emily Stumpf, Wisconsin Holstein Association Princess Attendant, Julia Nunes, Alice in Dairyland and Cayley Vande Berg, Wisconsin Fairest of the Fair.
The Wisconsin Holstein Association All-Breeds Futurity would not be possible without the generous donations from our major sponsors, Compeer Financial, International Protein Sires, and Agropur. We would also like to thank all of the committee members, volunteers, and additional sponsors that helped make this event possible.
We hope we will see everyone at the 2022 WHA All-Breeds Futurity Show at next year’s Wisconsin State Fair.
