Tonya and husband David hail from the town of Endeavor. Together they have four children, Joshua, Travis, Tiffanie and Tori, and as a family they raise a few head of beef and have a small business selling show lambs. Tonya works for Gumz Farms as the head of Human Resources and is very passionate about the agriculture industry. Tonya also has a passion for community service and helping local youth. She has had a positive impact on past fairest of the fair winners, helping through out their rein to become better public speakers, to help prepare them for the State Fairest of the Fairs Competition, and to give them many tools to further their development in becoming strong professional women in agriculture.
Hi my name is Halie Maier and I am beyond excited to announce that I will be serving as Marquette County’s 2021 Fairest of the Fair!
The fair has always been one the best highlights of my summer for many years! I enjoyed showing beef and swine and also entering projects of food and photography. I have many memories of working in the 4-H food stand and volunteering in many ways in Marquette County.
Currently, I attend UW-Platteville majoring in Animal Science and Agribusiness. At school I am a part of Sigma Alpha (a professional women’s agricultural sorority) where I serve as treasurer, as well as Rotaract (a campus community organization) where I also serve as treasurer. Another part of my campus involvement is serving as an Ag Ambassador for UW Platteville. During the school year I work at the UW Platteville Pioneer Dairy Farm. I have also recently started my summer internship at ABS Global as a Supply Chain Intern. I have current ambitions after college of pursuing a career as an Animal Health and Nutritionist.
I hope to continue to be a strong advocate for agriculture throughout the rest of my college career and after graduation. I am excited to have a fun filled summer of promoting the Marquette County Fair by attending events throughout the county and meeting many people!
