Join us in-person or virtually on Tuesday, May 10 for a presentation by Julia Nunes, Wisconsin's current Alice in Dairyland. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, she is the only Alice in history to serve two terms. 

Alice in Dairyland is a one-year, full-time public relations professional employed by the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade, and Consumer Protection (DATCP). Each year, Alice in Dairyland travels more than 30,000 miles throughout the state, promoting Wisconsin agriculture to various audiences. Additionally, she conducts hundreds of media interviews, speeches, and school presentation.

The 75th Alice in Dairyland Finals will take place May 19-21, 2022, culminating at the Monona Terrace in Madison.

About Julia Nunes:

Nunes, of Chippewa Falls, grew up on her family’s registered Holstein dairy farm, where feeding calves and clipping dairy cattle for the county fair were just a couple of things that helped shape her childhood.

During her teen years, she was heavily involved in her area Junior Holstein group and 4-H club. Nunes went on to study at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities, where she was involved in the Gopher Dairy Club and Lambda Delta Phi Sorority. In 2017, she shared her knowledge of agriculture and the dairy industry while serving as the Northern Wisconsin State Fair’s Fairest of the Fair. Nunes interned at Redhead Creamery, where she sharpened her love of cheese. In May 2019, she graduated with bachelor degrees in Agricultural Communication & Marketing, and Animal Science, with minors in Agricultural & Food Business Management, and Horticulture.

Nunes began serving as the 73rd Alice on July 6, 2020. In her first term as Alice, she wrote more than 100 articles, completed over 232 TV and radio interviews, and engaged with thousands of people on social media across 1,140 posts. Amid significant challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, she worked to continue educating Wisconsinites about agriculture by hosting live events on Facebook and Zoom that featured Wisconsin farms and agricultural products.

Following the cancelation of the 74th Alice in Dairyland Finals, Nunes agreed to a second term as the 74th Alice, becoming the only Alice in history to serve two terms. Her second term will end on July 15, 2022.

“It has been a pleasure to bring Wisconsin agriculture into homes and communities across the state this past year, even when we couldn't be together in person," said Nunes. “I am honored to serve another term as Alice and continue promoting Wisconsin's diverse $104.8 billion agriculture industry."
