Texas dairy farmers celebrated Big Tex’s 60th birthday with a milk toast on Sunday, Sept. 30, at the State Fair of Texas. Dairy MAX dairy farmers and Oak Farms coordinated the toast.
The first 1,000 people received free milk and were invited to register to win Oak Farms milk for a year.
The toast was presented by Holly Hemmingsen, her sister, Heidi, and their grand champion Brown Swiss Cow. The Hemmingsen sisters are Texas dairy farmers from Leesburg.
Fairgoers are encouraged to join Dairy MAX and Oak Farms at the Dairy Discovery Zone for more activities. Texas dairy farmers will continue to toast Big Tex each day at 2:30 p.m. at the Dairy Discovery Zone through the end of the fair.
