World Dairy Expo recently named Caylei Arnold of Hartford, Connecticut as the 10K Ultimate Fan Giveaway winner. The contest was created to celebrate and thank the 10,000 Expo Facebook fans. When Expo reached this 10K milestone, the fans were asked to answer "What is the world's greatest dairy show?" Thousands responded with the correct answer World Dairy Expo! From those who answered, the winner was randomly selected.
The winner, Caylei Arnold, holds a degree in Animal Science from the University of Connecticut. She became involved with dairy cattle during her freshman year in college. She quickly fell in love with dairy animals and joined the UConn Dairy Club. Since 2010, she has shown registered Holsteins and Jerseys for John & Ashley Collins of Powder-Mill Holsteins & Jerseys in Enfield, Conn. After Caylei won, she commented, "I have never been to World Dairy Expo but I have spent the past several years tuning into ExpoTV online to catch a glimpse of the shows! I am so excited to arrive at Expo and experience it for the first time."
