Dairy judging has been in Angie Ulness’s blood for more than two decades, and that isn’t likely to change anytime soon.
Ulness, a UW–Madison dairy science graduate, finished second in the National Intercollegiate Dairy Cattle Judging Contest in 1999. Later this month, she will coach a team at the National 4-H Dairy Judging Contest at the World Dairy Expo that includes her daughter, Clarissa, one of her team’s competitors.
Angie and her husband, Mark, himself a UW–Madison dairy science grad, have three younger children coming up through the pipeline. “So I’ll be coaching dairy judging for a really long time,” she says.
