Brandon Kerb stands by as a machine milks one of his family's dairy cows Friday, Aug. 31. His parents own Kerb’s Dairy in Weld County, and had traveled to Pueblo to compete in the Colorado State Fair. Preparing dairy cows for judging is a difficult balance, as higher points are awarded to cattle with larger udders, but leaving a cow unmilked for too long causes them discomfort.
