Wanamingo Girl is First Time Dairy Princess


Claudia Kennedy of Wanamingo will be a co-dairy princess representing Goodhue County dairy farmers and the dairy industry this year. This will be the 69th year that the state has held the Princess Kay competition. Girls from all over the state represent their county and some will compete to become crowned Princess Kay of the Milky Way the day before the Minnesota State Fair. Haley Hinrichs of Goodhue was the first and only girl from Goodhue County to win the title.

Claudia Kennedy does not live on a dairy farm but started working at the Norton Dairy in Wabasha County when she was eleven years old. She currently is working at the Tangen Dairy in Wanamingo. One of the unusual jobs she has done is to implant steers. She will be attending all the events she can this summer to represent the Goodhue County dairy industry.

Her mother is Kris Streiff and she has five sisters, Mary Voracek, Amy Kennedy, Whitney Floren, Ashlynn Taft and Maddy Kennedy. This fall she plans top attend Dakota County Technical College and study welding.
