Waiting for milking time …


Each autumn, the Dixie Classic Fair returns to Winston-Salem (NC);  2012 was it’s 130th year.  The fair began in the former town of Salem as a grain exposition in 1882.

There are competitions for everything imaginable, one of the longest standing is the Dairy Cattle competition populated by young competitors who spend a year grooming their cows for show.  There is a lot of  “down-time”, some of which is waiting for your place in line to milk your cow twice a day in the electric milking room .. or by hand.
