Dairy Lane interactive exhibit introduced at Wisconsin State Fair

The Wisconsin State Fair is giving fairgoers a new and different dairy experience.

Dairy farmer Katy Katzman of Whitewater is part of the Wisconsin State Fair Dairy Promotion Board.  She tells Brownfield the old House of Moo has been replaced by a much more interactive Dairy Lane exhibit. “It’s farm to fork. It starts with the cows, it starts with the goats. We also do feature the dairy goats with Wisconsin being the leading dairy goat state in the nation with more than 72,000 dairy goats, and we take it from the animal to the plant, to the grocery store, to the consumer.”

She says the whole object is to help fairgoers understand how food is produced. “As a dairy farmer myself, I’m very passionate about sharing that story so consumers know where their product comes from.”

And, the interactive stations and live dairy animals of Dairy Lane have people that can answer questions from consumers and their children. “We have volunteers from the industry. We have farmers that are walking throughout Dairy Lane throughout the fair and can answer.”
