Well, Lady LeWinDa Milkzalot at the Lowville Producers Dairy Cooperative in Lowville, Lewis County, is getting ready for graduation season donning her mortarboard and tassels.
The famed Holstein often wears different garb for the particular season. In summer, she has been seen with big sunglasses on and in the winter, she shivers even while bundled up in a scarf and socks on her ears.
From its website, the cooperative began in 1936 and has been in business for 75 years. It has about 175 member/owner farms who produced in excess of 310 million pounds of milk in 2011; the equivalent of 36 million gallons of milk.
The cooperative's website states Lowville Producers is the largest dairy cooperative in Lewis County with more than 65 percent of the milk produced in Lewis County handled through it.
