Miss Apple Snapple-Red-ET was chosen as the 2016 World Dairy Expo International Futurity Champion. Snapple is a Red & White and is owned by MilkSource Genetics of Wisconsin. The selection of each breed’s futurity winner is held during the respective breed shows. On the final day of the show, all of the breed futurity winners gather on the colored shavings for the selection of the overall futurity winner.
