Locals care for milk cows at fair

YAKIMA — With numerous dairies located in the Lower Yakima Valley, its makes sense that you’ll find a number of Prosser, Sunnyside and Zillah residents sharing duties in the dairy cow area of the Central Washington State Fair. It even makes sense that the milking parlor has been named in honor of longtime Granger dairyman Robert Golob, who served on the fair board for many years. The dairy cow area is open to the public during the duration of the fair, through Oct. 1.
