Wisconsin Dairy Products Association, (WDPA) will be sponsoring its twelfth annual World Dairy Expo Championship Dairy Product Contest this year. The contest, the only one of its kind, will once again be held in conjunction with World Dairy Expo. This year’s contest will have 71 different categories, encompassing a wide range of dairy products that include, cheese, butter, milk, ice cream, yogurt, whey, cottage cheese, sour cream, whipping cream and more.

According to WDPA Executive Director Brad Legreid, “This contest continues to grow every year at unprecedented rates of growth. Last year we had over 850 entries, including international entries for the second-year-in-a-row. No other dairy-related contest in the past 50 years has achieved such a tremendous rate of growth in such a short period of time. This clearly reflects how the dairy industry has enthusiastically embraced this one-of-a-kind dairy product contest. We anticipate that this growth rate will continue in the years to come as more and more dairy companies learn about this contest and see how it can benefit their companies.”

WDPA is issuing a “call for judges” for the championship dairy product contest. Marianne Smukowski, WI Center for Dairy Research, is the head judge and will lead all contest judging. In addition to Smukowski, WDPA is seeking judges for these products:

  • Cheese & Butter – 12 judges needed
  • Yogurt – 4 judges
  • Ice Cream and Sherbet – 6 judges
  • Whey Products – 2 judges
  • Cottage Cheese, Sour Cream and Sour Cream Dips – 6 judges
  • Fluid Milk and Cultured Buttermilk – 8 judges

Interested parties should send their resumes to Wisconsin Dairy Products Assn., 8383 Greenway Blvd #130, Middleton, WI 53562 by May 9, 2014. A WDPA contest committee will review all resumes and select the judges.
