According to THIS REPORT FROM THE WORLD HAND-MILKING CHAMPIONSHIPS this year, there was a cow scandal.

A milk mystery.

Last year’s hand-milking champion decided not to participate in this year’s competition, claiming that cows were being fed drugs and other steroids in order to increase their natural milk production.

Why is this a big deal in the milk community?

Because this year’s HAND MILKING CHAMPION was able to produce 8.7 liters of milk from his prized cow Mirka in the regulation 2-minutes.

The previous world record for milking a cow in two minutes was a measly two liters of milk.

So how in the heck could a cow get milked for an additional six liters of milk above the previous world record? THAT’s the controversy that has tainted this year’s milking festival.
