Greetings! My name is Steffani Koch and I am proud to be serving as the 2013 Wisconsin Fairest of the Fairs. I was born and raised in Dodge County and graduated from Mayville High School in 2009. I then proceeded to attend the University of Wisconsin- River Falls, majoring in Dairy Science with a minor in Chemistry. I was accepted into the School of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Wisconsin- Madison, where I am currently completing my first year of graduate study. I will graduate with my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree in May of 2016 and plan to practice large animal medicine. Outside of classes I enjoy exhibiting dairy cattle, becoming involved with school clubs, hunting, and spending time with my family and friends.
My past fair experiences have inspired me to serve as the Wisconsinís Fairest of the Fairs. I have always considered the Dodge County Fair to be my summer vacation. It was there, that I could do what I enjoyed and I could demonstrate what I had learned throughout the year. My involvement in organizations such as 4-H, FFA, and Girl Scouts has taught me to seize opportunities as they arise. At the present time, you may not know what lifelong impact taking these chances will have on you as well as those around you. I am proud to represent the Wisconsin State Fair and the Wisconsin Association of Fairs, I am excited to be working with those people who share my passion, and I cannot wait to see you at the fair!
