June is Dairy Month and it’s been a busy one for Delaware County Dairy Royalty.
Abby Klostermann of Dyersville is the 2019 Delaware County Dairy Princess. Since being crowned in March, she has served alongside Alternates Lauren Goldsmith and Amber Engelken, both of Earlville.
Engelken says as royalty, they have spent the past several months promoting and educating others about the dairy industry.
Goldsmith says they have spent the past month making public appearances in parades and grocery stores.
And the teens, along with the County’s little dairy royalty, had the honor of welcoming the first baby girl and boy born in June at Regional Medical Center in Manchester. Both of the new arrivals were presented with a basket of dairy goodies that included a customized bib, teddy bear and cheesesticks.
