Miss Kitty to Preside as Thunder Road’s Miss Milk Bowl 2008

Harvest Hills Miss Kitty, a lovely seven year-old registered Ayrshire dairy cow, has been named “Miss Milk Bowl 2008” and will hold court at the 45th Annual Chittenden Bank Milk Bowl stock car race at Barre, VT’s Thunder Road.  A beauty pageant was staged at Harvest Hills Farms in Berlin, VT, and according to Annie Burke of Harvest Hills, Miss Kitty won the title – her first – going away.

One lucky race driver will have the dubious honor of bussing bossy as the winner of the 45th Annual Chittenden Bank Milk Bowl.  As has been tradition since the first Milk Bowl in 1962, the winner of the three-segment, cumulatively scored race paying a total of more than $60,000, will plant a kiss on the trophy queen immediately following the victory.
