Wild Cow Milking

Have you ever seen two men running around a dirt arena trying to milk a wild cow? Well, here’s your chance!

Wild Cow Milking is a timed competition that begins when a cow is turned loose into the arena. Out of a two-man team, one ropes the cow while the other tries to mug it. Then the roper jumps off his horse and tries to milk the cow until they get a small amount in a bottle.

The clock usually stops after the cow is milked, and a team member runs with the bottle to a designated area. For the time to count, there must be enough milk in the bottle to produce at least one drop when it’s turned upside down.

Wild Cow Milking is the Wednesday local event. You’ll laugh, cheer and have an all-around good time watching these locals compete!
