Meadow Gold Dairies Hawaii is holding a "Name Baby Moo" contest open to children of Hawaii, ages 4 to 13, to name Lani Moo's male calf born Sept. 29.
Meadow Gold gives kids
chance to name Baby Moo
Lani Moo, Meadow Gold's longtime "ambassador of good health," gave birth to the 104-pound calf at the Honolulu Zoo. Her offspring is a Holstein with black and dark brown markings on a white coat.
Four weeks prior to the birth, Meadow Gold reintroduced Lani Moo, a 3-year-old Red Holstein cow, at the Honolulu Zoo.
"She and the calf are doing well, and he's strong and healthy. He's a cute little guy," said Glenn Muranaka, president and general manager of Meadow Gold Dairies Hawaii. "We're very proud of them both."
Children wishing to enter the contest must submit their full name, age, gender, home address, e-mail address, home phone number, parents' names, school, grade, suggested name for the calf, and a brief explanation (maximum five sentences) of the suggested name.
The deadline for entries is Nov. 30. Entries should be mailed to "Name Baby Moo" contest, Meadow Gold Dairies Hawaii, P.O. Box 18880, Honolulu 96805. Contest information is available at www. LaniMoo.com
The winning name will be announced Dec. 16 at the Children's Zoo by the child who submitted it.
The winner will receive a year's supply of Meadow Gold milk and ice cream, a Meadow Gold gift pack, a one-year premium family membership from the Honolulu Zoological Society and a zoo gift pack.
