MDA Jailbirds
Moo Roo hosts Muscular Dystrophy Lock-Up

Moo Roo will host the MDA "Thanks for Giving" Lock-Up event on Thursday, Nov. 5, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Some of Waterloo's Most Wanted are being charged with having big hearts. Their bail? $800 in honor of sending one kid to MDA Summer Camp. One of the celebrity "jailbirds" will be Eileen Loan of KWWL.

MDA's fundraising goal this year is $20,000. The jailbirds will eat, have fun raising pledges and get to know the other people behind bars at Moo Roo. Come out and meet the MDA Jailbirds!

New products
Great gift ideas

Cow of the Month

In honor of fall foliage, November's Cow of the Month is Orange. This girl has a special marking on her neck that looks like an "O" (see photo), so her name is fitting. Orange is 4 years old and has had two calves - both bulls. She has produced 35,864 pounds of milk in her lifetime and has been a trouble-free cow. She's small, gentle and has a good attitude!

Farm tours
Season draws to an end

Thanks to all have made a visit to the farm for tours the past several months. We've enjoyed sharing our farm with you. We'll continue scheduling in the spring with a new tour center.

Scary good time
Moo Roo Halloween party

Thank you to everyone who came to Moo Roo for our Halloween party. We had about 35 people. Congratulations to our winners of pumpkin bowling, bobbing for worms and the other games. It was a HOWLING good time!

A time to give thanks
From our family to yours

The holidays are a time to remember our families and friends as we gather for big meals or stop in for a visit.

We wish you each a very blessed Thanksgiving and thanks for the kind words of support shared each and every day at our stores. We have much to be thankful for!
