tbt: Time to get a moooo-ve on in WRJ

The #valleynewsthrowback hashtag is my favorite hashtag.

Forty-one head of selected Jersey cows, totaling approximately 32,000 pounds, are loaded on a cattle van on May 2, 1963, at Maplerow Farm in White River Junction, Vt., to start the largest and longest shipment of pure breed cattle on record. Three of the 41 bovines making the 2,800-mile trek to Phoenix are from Harold Wright’s Maplerow Farm. The cows are to be delivered to William Weaver, a distributor of All Jersey Milk in Phoenix. Covering 2,800 miles in three days, the shipment of New England’s best will stop off in Columbus, Ohio, where they will be shown at the Ohio State Fair. (Valley News – Larry McDonald)

UPDATE: This joke is really killing.
