World Championship Milking Competition

World Championship Hand Milking

Lenna (Bergamo) – On your mark, get set……Mooooo! And a whole lot of mooing it was at the mungitura a mano (hand milking) competition held in Val Brembana just last week. For being the 1st edition, this event was well-organized and attracted a mixed crowd of all ages. Switzerland, Romania, India and Italy were represented among the 43 contestants (7 of them women). Go Italy!!!! Giving it their udder best XD, participants took to the teats in a contest to extract as much milk as possible within the set time of 2 minutes.

Here’s a short clip that I put together and as you can see it was a great day out for everyone. Hopefully it will evolve into something bigger (food stands, markets selling local produce, games for the kids, etc) and become an occasion to look forward to each year.
