MONROE

Abigail Martin of Milton has been named Wisconsin's 72nd Alice in Dairyland.

Martin will serve a one-year term in the full-time public relations position through the state's Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection. Her job is to travel around the state to promote agriculture.

After being selected, she told the crowd at Saturday’s event in Monroe that she was “extremely honored.”

“I’m just blown away,” Martin said. “My legs are shaking like crazy right now.”

Martin is part of the fourth generation on her family’s Holstein farm, according to an earlier news release. She previously worked in a marketing position with the Rock County 4-H Fair.

Kaitlyn Riley of Gays Mills preceded Martin as Alice. Martin will begin her duties June 3.
