Milking It

Think you’ve got what it takes to milk a cow like a dairy farmer? Or maybe you’d like to prove to everyone that you could survive the “good ole days” when everything was done by hand. No matter your motivation, we would like to see you compete in our first ever Milk a Cow Contest. Come by the Expo Barn on Wednesday, July 24th at 4 pm to take on your opponents in this new challenge.

Fairgoers of all ages will battle it out to see who can fill their bucket with the most picmilk in just two minutes by squeezing milk from the udders of our artificial “Bessy”.  Sign up in one of four divisions: women, men, kids (12 & under), and celebrities. Come cheer on the other divisions while you’re here, including your favorite local celebrities. First and second place in each division will win prizes sponsored by Midwest Dairy Association. First place finishers also win a ticket to the Sawyer Brown concert. Fill out an entry form at by July 13th or show up before the event.
