Grace the Milk - c1975

Grace the milk lady. All I know is my Dad took this picture as she was notorious for hating any pictures taken of her, and yes that is one of the many oil rigs heading out from Nigg.

Aye memories from a by-gone age. Ye'll no see the likes again that's for sure. I know she spent some time in the Arms on a Sat afternoon but I always thought it was for a coffee. Maybe I'm wrong.

Alec div thee mind when yer mother got music played ta the coos in the byre? She said a happy coo gees mair milk.

Aye I do Davey and years later she was proved correct. Apparently soothing music played to cows gives a higher yield of milk. Once again she was ahead of the game as Dorothy (above) agrees.The music chosen for this experiment was "Beethoven's Pastoral Symphony" but it turned out to be a bad choice, because I understand that half way through the milking the cows fell asleep.
