Dairy | Passion for dairy pushes through pandemic

A global pandemic is not pausing a young woman’s passion for the dairy industry.

Kate Meyer is the first Winona County Dairy Princess to have even been selected virtually.

“It was definitely challenging,” Meyer said talking about the interview process. “We held the crowning online, but I think that was fun because more people who don’t usually get the chance to make it to the banquet got to hear our speeches and see us get crowned. That was pretty cool, but definitely something different.”

In her time as an ambassador, she has used the online platform to continue reaching consumers.

As Minnesota relaxed some restrictions on events and gatherings, Meyer did have a few chances to interact with the community during June Dairy Month handing out milk and cookies at Cabin Coffee in St. Charles and serving ice cream at the Lewiston Farmers Market.

“We had a few good chances to get out in the public, so that’s been fun,” Meyer said.

She has always had a strong foothold in the industry. Her family owns and operations Quarry Hill Dairy. They milk around 800 cows and produce their own crops.

“I just want people to understand that farmers work really hard for food on the table and that all dairy products are safe,” Meyer said. “No matter what the label says, they are safe because they’re inspected properly. You never have to worry about any safety measures not being met when it’s on the shelf.”

Although most summer activities are canceled, Meyer said Winona County residents will continue to find her serving ice cream and doing giveaways at the Lewiston Farmers markets on Wednesday nights. She will also use her position to volunteer at the food shelf in St. Charles.

“As long as we practice the social distancing roles, we will be available for people to come visit and talk to the public,” Meyer said.

One of the best ways to keep up with the Winona County Dairy Royalty is on Facebook.

“We need to continue to support dairy farmers and continue to stay positive during this time,” Meyer said.
