Behind the Scenes

“Moovalous” Media Cow Milking Contest!

As the conclusion of the celebration of Agriculture Appreciation Month, five members of the Indianapolis media will see who squeezes out the competition in the Indiana’s Family of Farmers Media Cow Milking Contest on the Government South lawn Monday, March 21 at 11:30 a.m.

Contestants include John Stehr of WTHR, Kjerstin Ramsing from FOX59’S Morning Show, Tracy Forner & Andi Hauser from WISH-TV’s Indy Style and Dave Smiley of the Smiley Morning Show on WZPL-FM. Dave Russell of Brownfield radio will serve as master of ceremonies, Indiana Agriculture Director (and dairy farmer) Joe Kelsay will provide coaching and “color commentary,” 2011 State Fair Queen Sarah Lynn Alford will be the official timekeeper and IFOF representative Andy Dietrick of Indiana Farm Bureau will serve as the judge.

Each contestant will be given just 60 seconds to show they have the “udder” skill to earn the honor of Indiana’s Family of Farmers Media Cow Milking Champion and confirm his or her slot in the coveted State Fair Cow Milking Competition this summer for the Year of the Soybean.

In addition, spectators will be able to enjoy an early taste of the State Fair with Indiana Pork providing free pork burgers on a first come-first served basis. Plus, Milk Promotion Services of Indiana will make a cool contribution from the Dairy Bar by providing milk chugs also on a first-come first-served basis.

 When: Monday, March 21, 2011

Time: 11:30 a.m.
