Ag Grad Named Fairest of the Fair

| By: Britten, Casey

FVTC Agriculture grad Leah Weninger has been named the 2022 Dodge County Fairest of the Fair.

Leah graduated from Fox Valley Technical College in 2021 with degrees in Agribusiness Dairy Technician and Agribusiness Science & Technology - Animal Science, and works for her family farm in Iron Ridge, Wisconsin. She helps manage the dairy herd, including record-keeping and overall health and reproduction of the herd. Her day is filled with performing daily chores—feeding livestock, milking cows, driving tractors and performing equipment maintenance.

In her spare time, she enjoys making social media content about her life as a dairy farmer, and posting educational information on her farm's Instagram account. She also works with kids through school activities and camps.

Leah’s passion is educating consumers on how she, along with other farmers, care for the land and animals. “My dream is to open a farm center to the public where people can experience farm life," she says. "I love sharing what I’ve known my whole life with others.”

The Dodge County fair runs from August 17-21.
