Val the Cow at Cow Pie Bingo - Kentucky Farm Bureau

Val the Cow at Cow Pie Bingo

 

Recently, Executive Director Matt Michaud, Vice President Samantha McNay and Jami Guess visited Holy Cross High School for their annual Cow Pie Bingo event. Sunny Acres Farm and Jefferson County Farm Bureau has been providing Holy Cross with their "Fertilizer Cow" for three years.

Valentine (The Steer) really enjoyed his second trip to the event.

Students got to meet Valentine as part of the event.
Val was comfortable enough to decide to nap...while cute, didn't really help select a "Cow Pie Bingo" winner.
In the end, everyone had a great time and Val got to meet some wonderful people.

As the harvest season in Kentucky winds down, I understand the challenges many of you have faced, especially our state’s corn producers. I have heard yield numbers anywhere from 32 bushels per acre where the drought came at the worst possible time during the growing season, to nearly 200 bushels in spots where the rains were adequate.
