Turns out the cow, named Mary, was in no rush to drop a load. A DJ tried playing “Moon River” and some golden oldies over the PA system, which probably says as much about the DJ’s habits as the cow’s, because Mary took her sweet-ass time. Vendors started packing up their wares and the crowd thinned out.
From the report:
Finally, after two and a half hours, Mary made her mark. The lucky winner was from Red Bank.
“She was a little bit shy,” (farm owner Bill) Potter said afterward, “with all that pressure she was under.”
He meant the cow, we presume.
