Introducing Mootilda, the Milk Means More Mascot!
Milk Means More is very excited to introduce you to our fun-loving mascot, Mootilda. She has been representing Michigan dairy farm families for a little while, but we felt it was time for her official introduction!
We recently sat down with Mootilda to get to know her a bit better.
MMM: Mootilda, can you tell us more about your background?
Mootilda: Of course! For a long time, other dairy programs had a mascot and Michigan didn’t. So in 2016, I was designed and created to become the mascot for Milk Means More. Since then I’ve had a blast appearing at events around Michigan, doing my best to bring dairy fun to everyone!
MMM: Why did you want this role as mascot?
Mootilda: I just felt a calling to get people excited about dairy! I knew I could use my silly, funny and sunny personality to share the story of Michigan dairy farmers who are doing great work taking care of my fellow bovine friends and providing delicious, nutritious milk for all kinds of great foods!
MMM: Where can people meet you?
Mootilda: I like to “cow around” and I enjoy entertaining people and making them smile. You may see me making appearances at schools across the state, and other special events where dairy is celebrated. I especially like events with my fellow mascots, like Crash with the West Michigan Whitecaps games or Roary at our Fuel Up to Play 60 events. And I’m not camera shy—I love being featured on the Milk Means More Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts!
MMM: Do you have any other family members in the mascot business?
Mootilda: Yes! My little sister, Miss Moo, is another mascot in the family and can be seen at events in Metro Detroit, including this summer’s Undeniably Dairy Tour! And Holly Holstein frequents some stops, too!
MMM: Why should people eat dairy foods?
Mootilda: Dairy foods are delicious and nutritious! Most contain calcium, vitamin D and other nutrients people don’t get enough of. And, who doesn’t love an ice-cold glass of milk, or creamy cottage cheese, or tangy yogurt, or rich chocolate ice cream, or. . . well, I could go on and on.
Thank you, Mootilda, for doing a great job spreading the love for Michigan dairy!
