72nd Alice in Dairyland
Wisconsin Department of Agricultural, Trade and Consumer Protection
Abigail Martin is serving as the 72nd Alice in Dairyland. As Wisconsin’s agriculture ambassador, her goal is to educate audiences across Wisconsin about the $88 billion economic impact and importance of our state’s diverse agriculture industry in our daily lives.
Martin, of Milton, has a passion for all things Wisconsin: good cheese, the Wisconsin Badgers, and her Wisconsin farm family. She is the fourth generation on her family’s registered Holstein farm. It was there that she found a love for dairy cattle, and long summer days at the county and state fairs. Her interest in agriculture led her to pursue a degree in dairy science at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. On campus, she was involved in the Association of Women in Agriculture, Badger Dairy Club, Collegiate Farm Bureau, and was on the intercollegiate dairy judging team. She has held previous roles in marketing at the Rock County 4-H, East Central/ Select Sires, and the Babcock Hall Dairy Store.
