The World Dairy Expo may be over 150 miles away in Madison, but that is not stopping international visitors from visiting operations in Kewaunee County. Pagel’s Ponderosa Dairy, Cornette Dairy, Kinnard Farms, and Junion Homestead Farm are just some of the local operations playing host to industry professionals from as far away as Japan and Germany. Tom Cornette says his German visitors were most interested in his Luxemburg facility and how it has helped improve production from his herd in recent years. That does not mean Cornette is not learning while he is teaching.
Kewaunee County youth are having a successful week showing cows at the World Dairy Expo itself this week, including reserve champion honors for Carmen Haack of Algoma and her heifer Spike. More Kewaunee County juniors are expected to show animals through the World Dairy Expo’s close on Saturday.
