Judges in Madison this week will sample 3,402 types of cheese, butter, and yogurt — all in the name of crowning the winner of this year’s World Championship Cheese Contest.

The competition first took place in 1957, as a panel of judges tried about 50 different cheddars in the back of a creamery warehouse.
