Vote in the Professional Dairy Producers Foundation's Pie Eating Contest

Vote in the Professional Dairy Producers Foundation's Pie Eating Contest
Event will be held March 18 during PDPW Annual Business Conference

The field is set and the polls are ready to open. For the third year, the Professional Dairy Producers Foundation is announcing a strong field of pie eating candidates, including: Mark Diederichs, manager, Lake Breeze Dairy; Matt Repinski, master agronomist, Winfield-Land O Lakes; Keith Engel, milk quality specialist, GEA Farm Technologies; Dennis Frame, Timber Ridge Consulting and professor emeritus- University of Wisconsin Extension; Jeff Montsma, producer services manager, AgroPur, and Steve Kelm, professor, UW- River Falls. The top three vote getters will eat pie --- without their hands --- on stage at the PDPW Business Conference on March 18.

Witness the glory of pie eating victory and the agony of defeat when your favorite candidate eats pie on stage.

Here's how you can make that happen for your favorite candidate (or candidates!):

Visit, click on VOTE. Enter your name, the name of the person you want to see in the Finals, and the number of votes you want to cast. Each vote is a $1 donation to the Foundation, and you can cast as many votes as you want.

Check the web site frequently through March 18. Vote often to keep your candidate in the Top 3!

Ask your friends, co-workers, neighbors, mail delivery guy, milk hauler and, really, any person walking by you on the street, to vote.

Cast final votes in person on March 18 at the PDPW Business Conference.

You can make a difference by voting early and often. Tell your friends and co-workers to vote. Have some fun and support future generations of dairy producers!
