Cows on the Concourse 'mooves' into downtown Madison Saturday

Posted: Updated:

MADISON (WKOW) -- A long-running Madison tradition took to the streets near the Capitol Saturday for the annual Cows on the Concourse.

For 35 years, the event has given families a chance to get an up-close look at Wisconsin's milk makers and get a taste of all the great dairy treats, like grilled cheese sandwiches, milk and cream puffs.

Organizers say Cows on the Concourse helps the public better understand what life is like on the state's many dairy farms.

"The goal of Cows on the Concourse is not only to just let people see the animals, but also have a chance to ask questions," says Laura Daniels, a dairy farmer. "There's a lot of dairy farmers, vets and 'moo experts'. We want people to ask any questions that they might have."

Visitors could also take a trolley to Science Saturday at the Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery on the UW-Madison campus to learn about the role dairy products play in a healthy lifestyle.
