Cows on the Concourse to be Held Virtually
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 06/01/2020

City folks may not be able to see the annual Cows on the Concourse in Madison this year because of COVID-19, but they can still learn some things about the dairy industry online. Organizers of the event, which is typically held on the Capitol Square during June Dairy Month, say this year they're going live on Facebook from June 1-5 to showcase different aspects of the industry.

"National Dairy Month is still going to happen, and Cows on the Concourse is a part of that tradition," said Committee Chairman Brandon Maly. "This was the safest option for our volunteers and attendees, and we look forward to a fun week promoting the dairy industry."

On Monday, Sydney Endres of Jazzy Jerseys in Lodi will give a live tour of her family's dairy farm and milking parlor at 3:30 p.m.

Angie Edge with Dairy Farmers of Wisconsin will give a specialty grilled cheese cooking demonstration on Tuesday utilizing products from local dairy farms. Her presentation will start at 3:00 p.m.

Wednesday's tour of Sassy Cow Creamery will take place at 10:00 a.m. with Jen Orchard.

And Endres returns on Thursday afternoon at 3:30 p.m. to show how farmers care for their newborn calves, followed by music from Soggy Prairie, a bluegrass band out of Sun Prairie and a Cows on the Concourse tradition.

Meanwhile, a Scavenger Hunt clue will be posted on Facebook each day.
