Mitchell Miner, 15, of Williamsburg, sleeps on his heifer, Audri.
“She likes to lay down quite a bit,” Miner told the Register on Monday. “I don’t really understand the bond with my animal either. She just enjoys my company.”
Miner and Audri have been preparing for the Iowa State Fair’s youth dairy cattle show. He has led her, clipped her, walked her and bathed her nonstop up to last Saturday.
