Record Number of Entries for U.S. Championship Cheese Contest in Green Bay Barry Adams, Madison.com Deli
This leap is all about cheddars, Swiss and Goudas, not touchdowns by the Green Bay Packers. When the 20th U.S. Championship Cheese Contest takes place next month in the atrium of Green Bay’s Lambeau Field, judges will have a record number of entries to score from around the country.
The Wisconsin Cheese Makers Association in Madison said Wednesday that entries for the biennial contest are up 11 percent from the 2017 event to 2,555 entries from 35 states. The contest, which began in 1981 and is now the nation’s largest technical cheese, butter and yogurt competition, also will have entries from 29 first-time competitors.
