I found out earlier this week that the Indiana State Fair has declared 2012 the Year of Dairy Cows. The official spokesperson for this event is the cow Buttercup, featured in the picture above. Isn’t she cute? You’ve got to love the tennis shoes. And the pink hairbow. And the blue eyes.
On the page of the Indiana State Fair website dedicated to dairy cows, you can find a bunch of links that sound very interesting:
– Winners drink milk: find a good amount of information about health and wellness
– Mooving along: meet Buttercup and learn more about dairy and dairy farmers
– Udderly delicious: find some recipes made with dairy products (they look good!)
– Cow-abunga!: for people going to the Indiana State Fair, this is a map indicating where the dairy events take care (they are lots of them for sure, and you can make your own butter or ice cream, how fun!)
I’m in San Diego so there’s no way I’ll make it to the Indiana State Fair, but it sure likes a lot of fun for the people living nearby. Do you attend fairs in your area?
