TAYLOR, Mich. (WXYZ) — The city of Taylor has announced a name contest for two miniature baby cows born at the Heritage Park Petting Zoo.

On Sunday, Jan. 13, the farm will begin accepting nominations in person and they will also host a special introductory showing at the farm. Nominations will be accepted through Jan. 31 and the winning names will be announced in February.

The farm is located on Nothline Rd. and Pardee, and every nomination turned in will receive a complimentary pass for the farm's marquee event, "celebrate spring," in April.

The person who submitted the winning name will also receive a family pass for the farm, good for admission during the entire year and to all special events.

Admission to the introductory event will cost $3, and you will be able to see the mini cows and turn in your nomination form.

“While many of the farms’ residents are rescue animals, the mini cows give the farm a unique opportunity to offer the thousands of elementary school children that visit the farm each year,” said Melanie Shihadeh, manager of the facility. “These children from the City of Taylor and surrounding cities in southeast Michigan a chance to actually be able to walk up, touch, and interact with cows during their visit.”
