Andis Company, a leading manufacturer of grooming tools for professionals and at-home consumers, supported youth competitors from organizations such as 4-H and Future Farmers of America, as they vied for titles at the recent Wisconsin State Fair.

Andis donated over $55,000 in professional animal clippers as prizes for youth competing in horse, beef, dairy, sheep, swine and goat categories. In addition, Andis distributors were on site to help the youth competitors with technical grooming advice.

“Andis Company is proud to support the next generation of farmers and ranchers,” says Matt K. Andis, president. “Their work and advancements are critical to not only the economic vitality of Wisconsin, but the entire food industry.”

The company was also a sponsor of the Dairyland Youth Celebration, presented by Wisconsin State Fair Dairy Promotion Board. The premier event recognized the accomplishments of the more than 600 exhibitors who participated in the junior dairy and junior dairy goat shows at the 2013 Wisconsin State Fair.
