Director Jose Miguel Hernandez Hurtado is holding two dolls in front of him: a four-foot long Black Raggedy Anne-type doll and a White doll, undisturbed in her original packaging. In the fluorescent-lit multipurpose room of LA LIGA’s, the Spanish Action League of Onondaga County, office, each child in the Latino Youth Troupe gives his or her reasons for liking the doll in Spanish.

The newly-installed Dairy Birthing Center at the New York State Fair saw a crowd of over 5,000 people on its busiest day.

The chance to see a cow give birth drew thousands of spectators to the New York State Fair Dairy Birthing Center this past week. Organizers estimate that some of the fair’s busiest days saw over 5,000 people lining fences and sitting on metal bleachers with the hopes of seeing a calf delivered. 

Every day, three to four cows – only hours away from giving birth – were brought into the fair from local farms, according to herd manager and host of the birthing center Jason Fetzer.
