Milk a Cow for Two Bucks

DES MOINES, Iowa–A group of Iowa State University students are giving fair-goers a hands on experience they won’t forget.

The ISU Dairy Science Club is teaching people how to milk a cow.

For two dollars guests can step up and learn a quick lesson and then give it a try for themselves.

Last year the club had more than 3,000 people try their hand at milking.

I_MAC or “I Milked A Cow” is the biggest fundraiser for the club last year raising more than six thousand dollars.

The money raised helps the 90 students in the club attend a regional conference every year.

“I get excited every day when we have more and more people, you don`t even worry about the money it`s just fun to see people and see the reaction on little kids faces and stuff.  $6200 goes along ways and helps out with a lot of things for our club,” says ISU Senior Cody Sacquitne.

If you want to try your hand at milking a cow, the ISU Dairy Club will be set up inside the dairy barn every day from 9:00-11:00, 1:00-3:00, and 4:00-6:00.
