Wisconsin Ag Connection - 05/24/2018
Green County will host the 72nd annual Alice in Dairyland Finals in May 2019. State Assistant Deputy of Agriculture Secretary Keith Ripp made the announcement Saturday during the Finale event for the selection of the 71st Alice in Dairyland in Adams
Agriculture provides nearly a third of the jobs in Green County, and approximately $2 billion in economic activity of the area's total economic activity. Dairy farming is the major agricultural industry, with on-farm production and milk sales account for $165.7
million, and processing milk into dairy products generates another $1.29 billion. Green County farmers own and manage more than 300,000 acres of the county's land--which includes cropland, rangeland, pasture, tree farms and farm forests.
A new Alice is selected each year from a group of finalists during a months-long public job interview.
Green County will hold its finals activities on May 9-11, 2019.
