One of the Nobles County Dairy Princesses is Morgan Wieneke, daughter of Andrew and Michele Wieneke of rural Lismore. Morgan and her co-princess, Kalene DeBoer, were featured in the "Today's Farm" supplement of the Worthington Daily Globe last week. Although she attends Lake Area Technical College in Watertown, SD, Morgan continues to promote the dairy industry in any way she can. Whether it's a parade, farm tours, or sharing knowledge with little children, Morgan loves being able to "bring the farm" to people who might not know much about how milk products get to the store. The Wieneke's got out of dairy farming in 2007, but Morgan has continued to work on other farms. She is committed to her studies so she can eventually manage a dairy farm or cattle ranch. We wish you well, Morgan. Good luck in your endeavors!
