A UW-Madison student will serve as Wisconsin’s 68th Alice in Dairyland.
Teyanna Loether of Sauk City was named this weekend as the newest Alice, making her the latest in a long line of ambassadors for Wisconsin agriculture. She said she hopes to use the position to teach those she interacts with over the next year something they “can take back with them into their daily lives.”
Loether is set to graduate this spring from the UW-Madison with a master’s degree in animal sciences. She grew up on a dairy farm and was a 2010 Fairest of the Fair.
Loether said she is “really looking forward to carrying on the story of Wisconsin agriculture,” with a particular focus on helping the public understand where their food comes from. She hopes to use a “Recipes from Alice” idea to help show what Wisconsin ingredients are involved, along with the stories of their production, the people who helped make them, and the nutrition they provide.
Loether will begin her duties on June first. She will succeed Zoey Brooks of Waupaca, the 67th Alice in Dairyland.
