Alice in Dairyland Loves Promoting Wisconsin Agriculture

Cindy Zimmerman

One of the dignitaries who attends the World Dairy Expo as part of her job is Alice in Dairyland and it is always a pleasure to meet the latest young lady chosen to represent Wisconsin’s dairy industry and all of the state’s agriculture.

The 64th Alice in Dairyland is Katie Wirkus, who grew up on her family’s dairy and swine operation near Athens, Wisconsin and she started on the year long job on June 1. “We had Wisconsin State Fair and lots of community events and June Dairy Month of course was very busy,” she said.

Katie says that little girls always want to know if she’s a princess. “I’m not a princess, but I do get to wear the tiara to stand out and be visual for the industry,” she said.
