Burnett Dairy Cooperative took home several awards at the 2013 US Championship Cheese Contest, which took place March 12-13, 2013. Over 1700 entries from 30 states were evaluated by a panel of 38 expert judges. Our awards included:

  • Best of Class Alpha’s Morning Sun with Rosemary
  • 2nd Place—Smoked String
  • 2nd Place—Mild Provolone
  • 2nd Place—Aged Provolone

The United States Championship Cheese Contest is the largest technical evaluation of cheese and butter in the country and is rooted in more than 120 years of history, beginning when the Wisconsin Cheese Makers Association held its first cheese contest in 1891. In recent years, the event has flourished, more than doubling in size since 2001. This year, more than 30,000 pounds of cheese were entered into the contest.
