Ag Briefs: Cheese Championship auction sets record

Cheese Championship auction sets record

An exuberant crowd of dairy processors, marketers, and suppliers raised $339,835 for dairy education at the 2023 Chr. Hansen Championship Cheese Auction, held at CheeseCon in Madison, Wis.. The funds support industry training programs offered by the Wisconsin Cheese Makers Association (WCMA), as well as the World and U.S. Championship Cheese Contests and university dairy training centers.

For over 25 years, auction dollars have supported emerging dairy professionals through WCMA’s Mike Dean and Cheese Industry Supplier Student Scholarships. Funds raised at the Auction have also helped fund WCMA’s popular training programs for dairy manufacturers and suppliers, and fueled donations to build the new world-class Center for Dairy Research facility in Madison, as well as dairy pilot plants at the University of Wisconsin – River Falls and South Dakota State University. Altogether, WCMA has invested $1.3 million in the next generation of the dairy processing industry.
