In the last two pages of my children's book Moo-n Over Main Street Metropolis, I created a project for kids so they can have their very own Jersey cow. All they have to do is make a copy of the cow in the book (shown below) in color onto cardstock, write their cow's name on her pinafore, cut her out, take a photo of the two of them together, and mail or e-mail it to us. We'll post some of the photos here.

If you would like to join in the fun, click the image below to download a PDF and follow the instructions.

Right as fresh cow milk I'd say. Really cute. Okay Ron, waiting for your picture with your cut-out cow.

Jillian and Rosetta of Tennessee with their cows, Betsy and Old Red.



"We did a fun thing with the cows because the girls wanted to use them on their desks in their school room at home. So I took a little block of wood and cut a slot in it; the girls mounted popsicle sticks on the back of the cows to make them stable and now they stand up!"

I love this project, it is so amazing!

A good laugh overcomes more difficulties and dissipates more dark clouds than any other one thing - Laura Ingalls Wilder

I live on a small farm of seventy acres called Green Forest Farm, with 10 horses, a donkey, 5 beef cows, 2 beef heifers, 3 Hereford heifers, around 60 chickens, 8 dogs, my amazing cow, AppleButter, and her little Jersey calf HoneyButter!

Kendall is a beautiful name. Meet my granddaughter, also named Kendall! Our Kendall named her cow, Ice Cream. (she's holding a plastic ice cream cone she loves to take everywhere, along with her cow)

We love the Adopt-A-Cow Project! Way to go, Mary Jane!
