Tamara Flowers talks to visitors about how milking was done in the 1890s as Steve Anderson milks Millie the cow at the Littleton Museum.

Cows are marvelous creatures. And that’s no bull.

The Littleton Museum paid tribute to the bovine residents on its two working historical farms with a Bovines are Divine Day on March 29. Visitors learned about how Littleton’s founding fathers and mothers depended on cows every day.

And gave them a chance to moo like a cow. 

“It was funny to see people mooing,” said Jade Roulston, 10, whose friends competed in the mooing contest. “It’s been great.”
