Cheesemakers association donates to area FFA clubs
In 1935, Green County Cheesemakers established the Foreign Type Cheesemakers Association Laboratory (FTCMA) to perform quality control testing on the cheese they produced. The mission of the not for profit laboratory is to support our members with quality data that is accurate, timely and of the highest integrity. The laboratory operations are located at 1520 17th Street, Monroe, WI in a state-of-the art facility where customers from all over the Midwest trust FTCMA to perform their quality control testing under an ISO 17025 Laboratory Certification.
Each July, Foreign Type Cheesemaker’s Association sponsors the Cheese Contest at the Green County Fair. Approximately 100 entries are submitted to the contest. On Sunday of Fair Week an auction is conducted by Dave and Rena Koning for the 1st – 3rd place Winning Entries. The July 2018 auction raised $43,243.00 from 30 generous bidders on 511 pounds of cheese. Over 400 pounds of cheese not qualifying for auction was donated to the food pantry and the Green County Dairy Queens for distribution.
