Princess Kay of the Milky Way finalist Brittney Tiede, 18, of Le Center will be bringing home an almost 90-pound butter head from the Minnesota State Fair.
The Tri-City United High School graduate shined in the dairy ambassador pageant at the State Fair Band Shell on August 21. The young ladies were judged on their personality, communication skills, knowledge of the dairy products and the industry, and their commitment to dairy promotion.
Tiede, who grew up working on her family’s four-generation dairy farm and continues to work at another dairy farm in Le Center, was one of three to be called forward on the stage for the final coronation.
Ultimately, the crown was placed on 19-year-old Olmsted County college student Amy Kyllo’s head.
Kyllo and Tiede, along with the other eight finalists, each had their likeness carved in a 90-pound block of Dinner Bell Creamery butter.
