American Dairy Association North East and Pennsylvania Dairy Promotion Program welcomed Alexis Butler from Schuylkill County as the 2023-2024 Pennsylvania Dairy Princess, along with alternates, Emily Wright from Crawford County and Mackenzie Thomas from Lebanon County, as the new state team on Saturday, September 23.

ADA North East and Pennsylvania Dairy Promotion Program support the Pennsylvania Dairy Princess program with funding, training and promotional resources through the dairy checkoff program.

“As dairy farmers, we’re fortunate to be able to support these outstanding young women who are passionate about our industry and eager to share positive dairy messages with consumers of all ages,” said Pennsylvania Dairy Promotion Program Chair Lolly Lesher. “This program is ultimately a youth development program that helps prepare the participants to become future leaders in all industries, as well as life-long dairy advocates.”

The pageant can be viewed on the Pennsylvania Dairy Princess and Promotion Service Facebook page.

In addition to Pennsylvania, ADA North East supports dairy princess and ambassador programs in Maryland, Delaware and Virginia, and manages the programs in New York and New Jersey.
