Wahoo! I just finished the painting I painted for the 50th celebration of World Dairy Expo this year. Meet Regina.
Hi, my name is Regina. I like fine china, silver spoons and chippy paint. I collect vintage wire baskets.
Regina is an older Holstein, who to me, seems like she knows more than the average cow. She seems completely at peace with herself and happy to just be. I wrote about her in my first blog, so I won't go into too much depth here, but she is from my cousin's farm and her milk goes into some of WW Homestead Dairy's products (a local Iowa dairy started, owned and operated by a couple of my uncles and another family.)
World Dairy Expo is only a few days away, and as I mentioned before, is the only show we do a year. This year is the 50th celebration, and we will be exhibiting in the exhibition hall lobby as usual. We will have more merchandise than ever before, including lots of Regina things, but we usually sell out of several things each year (as we have great expo specials) so if you are going to the show be sure to stop by to shop and say hello if you get a chance. If you aren't going to the show and would still like to shop, keep your eyes on our Facebook and Instagram pages as we will have some great 50th celebration expo specials available to our Facebook and Instagram fans!
We have been busy making products for the show, and this week is a busy week for us as we finish making our products to bring with us to Madison for the show, which runs from October 4-8th.
Our 2017 calendars will be in from the printers this week as well and Regina made the front cover! Her name means "Queen," so we didn't feel like we really had much of a choice in who to include for the cover. The calendars will be available up on our website soon, and if you want one, check back in the next few days as we usually sell out.
Well, this is a bit of a short blog post and is a bit rushed, but I have a lot of things to do before next week, we have my sister and her family in town this week, Eddie may or may not be coming down with something. So, I better put the boys down to bed and get working!
Thanks for being a Steel Cow fan!
