Officials at the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture have announced the 2019 Cow of the Year. ‘Milk-n-More Tequila Naomi,’ a seven-year-old Jersey cow bred and owned by Ron & Nicolle of Cecil, has been selected as this year’s recipient for her excellent pedigree, production record and outstanding performance in the show ring.

Classified at Excellent-93, Naomi was named 2012 Reserve Junior All American Winter Calf at the All American Junior Jersey Show, and the Reserve Junior All Wisconsin Winter Calf. As a four-year-old, she won 2016 All Wisconsin honors; earned Grand Champion honors at the Junior Show at the Wisconsin Spring Showcase, and she placed ninth in the five-year-old class at the All American Junior Show.

She has a lifetime production record of 115,010 lbs. of milk, 5,068 lbs. of fat, and 3,796 lbs. of protein.

“She was one of our children’s favorite 4-H project animals with her sweet disposition and seeming love to compete at the shows,” said Nicolle Wussow.

Naomi will be recognized at a proclamation ceremony early next month during World Dairy Expo in Madison.

The Jersey breed was selected to receive the Cow of the Year award according to a succession plan among the major dairy breeds, as determined by the Wisconsin Purebred Dairy Cattle Association.
