“If It Weren't For Cows,” presented by Ed Janus. November 7 at 7:15 PM Goodman Atwood Community Center, Bolz Room A; 149 Waubesa Street, Madison 53704; 608-241-1574
Speaker Ed Janus believes that the dairy cow created Wisconsin--that is, the Wisconsin we know today, and the one we love: the neat barns with their ranks of silos, the undulating green of grasses, and especially the cows, our avatars of contentment. Janus will reveal how America's Dairyland was created through a remarkable effort of intelligence, belief and labor that began 160 years ago--an effort that continues today.
Ed Janus is an audio journalist, writer, and oral historian, and the author of Creating Dairyland (Wisconsin Historical Society Press, 2011).
