Windsor woman selected as Alice in Dairyland

BRILLION, Wis. (AP) -- A 25-year-old Windsor woman has been chosen as Wisconsin's 66th Alice in Dairyland.

The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture says Kristin Natzke Olson was selected on Friday night after a three-day competition. She will spend the next year promoting the state's agriculture industry.

Olson is a rural Fond du Lac native, and is a 2010 life sciences communications graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

She currently works as the dairy advertising coordinator for Accelerated Genetics in Dane County.

She'll officially begin her new duties on June 3, and will receive a $40,000 state-paid salary.
