Fan-selected press office challenge: Milk a cow

Last week, we asked our social media friends to suggest Fair topics they would like to see covered on the blog. We picked winners over the weekend, and will be posting our responses to their challenges this week. I took up Jessica’s challenge to milk a cow at the N.C. State animal science club booth in the Expo Center. I’ve never milked a cow at the Fair before, so I was a little nervous going into the booth, but the N.C. State students on duty offered me some tips. Here’s how it went:

The booth opens at 11 a.m. on weekdays and 9 a.m. on weekends, and the line closes at 9 p.m. every night. Cartons of milk and T-shirts are also available for purchase.

Have you milked a cow at the N.C. State Fair? What are some of your favorite Fair experiences?

About Bearded Lady

Paul Jones blogged for the 2009-2012 N.C. State Fairs. Here's his bio from 2009: Paul Jones, here (a.k.a. Bearded Lady). I love the N.C. State Fair. I love the rides, I love the food, but my favorite part of the Fair is the displays of the unusual. The two-headed snake, the world’s smallest woman, the world’s tallest horse and the list goes on. Originally from South Carolina, I hope that I can bring a different perspective to this blog as I shed light on some of the ordinary, yet extraordinary, aspects of this year’s Fair.
