Madisonians celebrate the state's dairy heritage today at on the Capitol Square.
June represents Wisconsin's Dairy Month and coordinators say what better time and place to get people better acquainted with the industry than this weekend with Cows on the Concourse.
Since many people can't make it out to area farms to see animals, the event brings the cows are brought right into the center of the city.
Laura Daniels from the Cows on the Concourse committee encourages people to use the event as a learning experience as children find out where milk comes from and what a cow really looks like. " I think mostly they're a little awestruck because they don't imagine the cows are as large as they are and they usually don't imagine the calves to be as small as they actually are."
As they got up close and personal with the animals, visitors also had the chance to sample cream puffs, ice cream, grilled cheese sandwiches, and milk.
This is the 26th year of Cows on the Concourse.
