Introducing the Finalists

Dairy princess programs provide a way for young women to be involved in the dairy industry, creating dairy advocates and community leaders. The young woman who serves as Minnesota’s dairy princess wears the title of Princess Kay of the Milky Way, a name selected in a Department of Agriculture contest almost 60 years ago. Princess Kay serves as the goodwill ambassador for Minnesota’s dairy farmers.
