To help promote the dairy industry, Ag Commissioner’s from 3 states took part in a milking contest this afternoon at the Sunbelt Ag Expo in Moultrie, Ga. When it was all said and done, Alabama’s Ron Sparks (pictured on the left) output didn’t quite match up to what Tommy Irvin of Georgia had. But then again, Sparks suffered a loss when one of the cows “kicked the bucket”, thus losing a considerable amount. Charles Bronson of Florida was also scheduled to take part in the event, but was unable to make it due to weather. So Tennessee’s Commissoner of Agriculture filled in and ended up winning the contest by a large margin. Before the contest, I was able to talk with Alabama Ag Commissioner Ron Sparks, while Lee McCoy caught up with Georgia Ag Commissioner Tommy Irvin.
