Cassy Krull talks about the World Dairy Expo experience.

The Merle Howard Award was presented for the 10th time last year. The winner, Cassy Krull of Wisconsin took some time from her very busy Expo schedule this year to talk with Hoard's Dairyman. She is an exhibitor herself but also helps family and friends prepare their animals, leads for the World Classic Sale, as well as following up with some of her summer intern tasks for Accelerated Genetics, a trade show exhibitor.


The name of this year's Merle Howard Award winner is kept top secret until it is announced during the Holstein Show on Saturday. Watch for the details on the winner on Saturday afternoon.
