Gov. Matt Bevin put his hands to work Tuesday afternoon, milking a cow on the Capitol grounds to highlight the upcoming National Dairy Month in June.
“So who wants to get squirted?” asked the governor as he squeezed the teat of a black-and-white Holstein dairy cow from Casey County and projected the milk toward a nearby crowd.
It was a scene not often seen on the lawn between the state Capitol and the Capitol Annex.
Bevin, who said he was once a county dairy club president in 4-H, joined state Agriculture Commissioner Ryan Quarles at the gathering.
Never miss a local story.
After participating in an ice cream tasting contest with Quarles, the governor milked one of the more than 60,000 dairy cows in the state.
