Blog post from Maryland Dairy Princess Renee Wilson

The Upper Chesapeake (Maryland) region dairy princess pageant was held May 26. I remember how I felt in the contestants' position: nervous, uncertain and yet, excited. I decided to run for Upper Chesapeake Dairy Princess when a few friends involved in the dairy industry presented me with the idea. I thought they were crazy. I did not know the duties of a dairy princess. I was simply a farm girl who didn’t mind getting her hands dirty. However, my family and friends insisted, and I tried. I…

Proud to Dairy(:

Ever since I started showing dairy heifers in high school I knew that the Dairy Industry was where I belonged. I now work on a dairy and I absolutely love it. There is nothing like getting up and going to a job you love. I love just being around and working with the greatest animals ever. They offer so much resources to the people all around the word and I am proud to be working with them. I like being able to help keep cows healthy and comfortable for everything they give to us. There is…
