Fans of the dairy cow birthing center no longer need to be on the fairgrounds to catch these “udder miracles.”
The New York Animal Agriculture Coalition will have a 24-hour live stream of the center this year, plus text alerts providing minute to minute updates of calf births.
“We will send text alerts so you can log online or if you are here at the Fair watch a calf be born,” explained Eileen Jensen, Director of Promotions at NYAAC
The idea was sparked by April the giraffe’s successful live stream, which skyrocket to stardom.
Jensen says the aim is to connect more consumers with farmers.
To receive updates of the births text ‘moo’ to 24587.
The live stream is already up and running.
