MEET Mil­lie, Queens­land’s new mooovie star. Milk lovers can watch the six-year-old guernsey via cow­cam – be­lieved to be the first in Aus­tralia. It live streams on the Maleny Dairies’ web­site and YouTube, and has been seen by more than 2000 peo­ple. Mil­lie won the role ahead of about 200 other cows at the dairy. Staff say she has that Xfac­tor. “We chose Mil­lie be­cause she has been our tour cow for a while now and has a lovely calm tem­per­a­ment,” mar­ket­ing man­ager Emily Gouge said. “Mil­lie is also very used to get­ting a lot of at­ten­tion and will poke her head through fences to let kids pat her.” Cow­cam came about as a way to ed­u­cate peo­ple about the dairy in­dus­try and show that the farm’s cows are well treated. There are also plans to turn the cam­era on mile­stones at the Sun­shine Coast hin­ter­land farm, such as the birth of calves. “The health and well­be­ing of our cows is at the heart of what we do, and we hope the cow­cam will show the kind of lives they lead,” Emily says.
