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!
