Mississippi dairy facts, girls on fire & the Prettiest Cow at the Neshoba County Fair

Meet the official #neshobacountyfair Prettiest Cow and her owner:


that's 5-year-old Buzz Lightyear in braids "Taking Dairy to Infinity and Beyond!"


Yes, the Pretty Cow Contest is a real thing, and if there's ever one at your local #countyfair... GO!


Scroll to see two more #girlsonfire:


  1. That's Miss Neshoba County 2021 Abby Seale conferring during the judging. She's a @MSState student who's both a President's List Scholar AND Miss Congeniality. Literally. #prettybadass

  2. As the judges deliberated, @msuextservice expert Dr. Amanda Stone regaled us with #farmfacts about Mississippi dairy production:


Did you know there are only 65 dairy farms in the state? Their cows average 6 gallons of milk per day -- and made 15 million gallons last year. That's a lot of milk, cheese, and ice cream! Most goes directly to local schools, hospitals and grocery stores.


So add a county fair to your summer #bucketlist, go find the local #4h, and give those farmers a high-five.


They're small but mighty!
