Shaved ice helps beat heat at Ag Expo

SHARPSBURG - Kids clamored for Cody's Hawaiian Shaved Ice to beat the heat Wednesday afternoon at the Washington County Ag Expo.

Blue raspberry, root beer and cherry are the most popular flavors, but people order even brand-new flavors like fireball, said owner Cody Jones.

"People try just about every one," he said.

Got milk?

Cows alternated in and out of the milking parlor Wednesday afternoon at the Washington County Ag Expo.

Foamy milk pumped down through the automatic milkers and into tanks while a small crowd watched the milking process.

Three cows could be milked at once in the milking parlor, and they patiently stood between metal bars as they were cleaned and fitted with the milkers.

Dairy cows produce 70 to 90 pounds of milk a day and are usually milked two or three times a day, said Tessa Wiles, 12, who is in 4-H and the daughter of dairy farmers Brad and Cathy Wiles.
