Rachel Rynda of Montgomery crowned 69th Princess Kay
Wednesday night, the 69th Princess Kay of the Milky Way was crowned to represent the state’s dairy farmers at the fair.
Rachel Rynda, of Montgomery in Le Sueur County, received this year’s title of “Princess Kay of the Milky Way.”
Rynda was among 10 county dairy princesses vying for the title, which has been held by Meeker County’s Anna Euerle for the past year.
Finalists are daughters of dairy farmers, employees of dairy farms, daughters of dairy farm employees or involved in raising or leasing dairy animals.
Rynda is now the official fair spokesperson for Minnesota’s 2,100 dairy farmers as she talks with fairgoers, makes educational classroom visits throughout the year and attends community events.
Starting Thursday, Rynda will sit while her likeness is carved into a 90-pound block of butter.
