Four young women in Goodhue County were named Dairy Princess royalty last week, putting them one step closer to the coveted Princess Kay of the Milky Way title.

Kjersten Veiseth from Zumbrota, Catherine Keller from Bellechester and Kira Quam and Kate Rechtzigel both from Kenyon were crowned April 7 at a Goodhue County Dairy Association ceremony and banquet. The dairy princesses will serve as goodwill ambassadors representing the dairy industry in Goodhue County.

The women will make appearances throughout 2018, participate in Midwest Dairy Association trainings and have the opportunity to compete to be a finalist for Minnesota's Princess Kay of the Milky Way. Princess Kay is crowned in August the night before the opening of the Minnesota State Fair.
