WDXOur first interview from World Dairy Expo is with Cheryl O’Brien, the current reigning Alice in Dairyland.

Cheryl grew up on a dairy farm in southwest Wisconsin, majored in journalism at the University of Wisconsin, and now has the privilege of representing Wisconsin’s agricultural industry as the 62nd Alice in Dairyland. “Throughout the year I will travel more than 40,000 miles across the state of Wisconsin and help promote the diversity of the food, fuel and fiber that makes up Wisconsin’s $59.16 billion agricultural industry,” Cheryl told me. “Our dairy industry is very important here in Wisconsin, contributing $800 every second to the state’s economy.”

This is a busy week for Cheryl/Alice at World Dairy Expo as she will be giving tours and talks to hundreds of visitors from school kids to international guests. Listen to my interview with Cheryl below:
