New Dairy Princess promotes ‘dedicated’ farmers

Photo provided to the Times Observer Veronica Ludwick was selected as 2021 Warren County Dairy Princess last month.

The newly minted Warren County Dairy Princess has hit the ground running.

June marks National Dairy Month and Veronica Ludwick wants to thank the county’s dairy farmers “for producing a high-quality milk that is used to produce our favorite beverage, milk, a snack of cheese, yogurt and my favorite — ice cream.”

Ludwick will spend the year as the public face of the dairy industry in the county.

She highlighted the efforts of farmers in bringing about the end result.

“They are dedicated seven days a week to care for their cattle and land,” she said. “And most of our farms in the area are family owned and operated.”

“I have been blessed to call my home Luddy Holsteins in Lander, Pa.,” she added, “where my dad and grandpa own and operate our family dairy farm.”

Ludwick said her favorite job on the farm is feeling baby calves and milking the cows.

The Warren County Dairy Princess Pageant was held on May 23 in Grand Valley. Special guests included the first Warren County Dairy Princess Edith Lehman.

“I would also like to thank last year’s Princess Madison Sleeman who rose above the challenges she faced promoting our amazing industry during a pandemic,” Ludwick said.

Her message for Dairy Month? Be thankful.

“This month if you see a farmer, thank them for their hard work and dedication to our wonderful dairy industry,” she said.
