COW GETS HER SHEEPSKIN!
ANIMAL SCIENCES GRAD HONORS HIS STUDY BUDDY
HE WORE a cap and gown. She wore ear tags.
University of Missouri students were moooved when they spotted a dairy cow strutting her stuff on campus for a photo shoot! Graduating senior Massimo Montalbano, an animal sciences major, wanted the bovine in his commencement photo to honor her contributions to his fouryear journey toward earning his degree!
The three-year-old cow, named Amelia, was an udderly model student and played a critical role in his undergraduate studies at the university’s Foremost Dairy Research Center, he said.
“I’ve worked at the dairy basically all throughout college,” proud Massimo added. “I bonded with all of [the cows], and she’s one of my favorites.”
The college even tweeted about Amelia’s big day and noted, “She loved visiting campus.”
Several people left “why didn’t I think of that” comments about the photo shoot on the school’s Facebook page.
“Oh for the love of Cow, this is awesome!” wrote one.
Another noted: “Is Amelia here studying Cow-culus? That’s a tough subject and sometimes goes in one ear and out the udder. She really needs to milk it for all its worth because the steaks could be high.”
And that’s how Amelia milked the spotlight to top this week’s Odd List!
