Office Mascot Gets a Name

Feb 20, 2020

If you've visited our office, you may have seen our woolly mascot and teaching model - Lady Baa Baa.

She has been joined by a dairy cow who was nameless. The dairy cow is used by Randi Black, our Dairy Advisor, when she visits educational venues. 

There was a naming contest held a the Youth Agriculture and Animal Science Field Day in early February. Kids submitted names and, in keeping with the farm animal theme, Randi's backyard hens picked a winner - see video!

Introducing Mackenzie the Moo Cow, name submitted by Marianna.
