I figured we’ve all had plenty of flooded landscape images to look at these past few days, so, for a much needed change, how about a beautiful bovine?
Meet Miriam, the winning cow, on display at the conclusion of a Cow Beauty Pageant, conducted back in early summer, 2001, in Moshav Be’er Tuvia, in southern Israel.
Miriam, weighs 650 kilograms, (1,430 lbs.). In 2010 she produced 13,400 liters (3350 gallons) of milk. But she won the prestigious title thanks to her perfect and noble body structure, her obvious beauty, and her light gait.
The pageant featured 20 four-legged beauties, selected by professional judges from the Israel Cattle Growers Association, the Tara dairy and Be’er Tuvia’s cowmen.
