Win A Cow (Knitted):
Chamber & Tourism Contest promotes Wyoming County’s dairy industry

WARSAW — A creative contest is helping celebrate “June is Dairy Month” in Wyoming County. The contest is being conducted by the Wyoming County Chamber & Tourism office in conjunction with the Arts Council for Wyoming County and Clickety Sticks in Arcade. They have knitted several stuffed cows. The Chamber & Tourism office is giving the public a chance to win one each week during June.

“It’s often said that there are more cows in Wyoming County than people, but it’s true,” said Eric Szucs, Director of Tourism for Wyoming County, in a news release. “There are 47,200 cows and 39,860 people in Wyoming County. So what better time to appreciate our innovative, creative and hardworking dairy culture, than to celebrate National Dairy Month in June?”

Entering to win one of the knit cows is easy and involves three steps:

■ Share a picture of yourself on Facebook enjoying dairy in Wyoming County.

Share a picture enjoying a cold glass of milk, eating an ice cream come, sampling your favorite cheese or visit one of the county’s many shops, restaurants, farmers’ markets or roadside produce stands.

■ Follow WyCo Tourism & the Arts Council for Wyoming County on Facebook for updates and activities.

■ Use the tag -WyCoApproved so the contest’s sponsors can see your entries.

The handcrafted knit cows were created by Linda Franke at the Arts Council for Wyoming County, along with Karrie Coleman and Kristen Mrowczynski from Clickety Sticks in Arcade. Officials thanked Sandy Pirdy of at Creekside Fabric, Quilts & Yarns for donating the yarn to make the cows.

Wyoming County is renowned for its farm-to-table culture, Chamber officials said. The county is New York’s largest dairy producer and its farmers are recognized as leaders in the national agricultural community.

June Dairy Month started out as a way to distribute extra milk during the warm months of summer. The commemoration was established in 1937 by grocer organizations sponsoring “National Milk Month.”

By 1939, June became the official “dairy month” and is still celebrated today.
