One of the launch lineups for the Nintendo Switch, 1-2 Switch has garnered attention for offering a slew of mini-games that can be played over a party, although it didn’t have the same impact as Wii Sports in terms of popularity, due to its lack of substance and expensive price. With that said, there are many games in it that brought enjoyment to players, including “Milk”, a cow milking game that requires you to fill up more buckets than your opponent. A farms museum disagreed with that and they even challenged Nintendo to a cow-milking content, and the Japanese company duly obliged.

This unexpected turn of events started when Billings Farm & Museum of Woodstock called out Nintendo for their cow-milking expertise over Milk in 1-2 Switch. In case you are unaware, Billings Farm is a living history museum with a dairy farm with it, and it does exhibitions, educational programming, and other events. They sent a letter to Nintendo accusing them of “taking all the challenge out of milking”.

"We have 30 prize-winning Jersey milking cows that we milk twice a day, and it is NEVER that easy," stated the letter signed by Alayna Perkins, the museum’s farm manager. "We also think that you guys look pretty slow."

Billings Farm & Museum then proceeded to link the letter to Nintendo on its Facebook page, and they wasted no time in responding to the challenge.

Well, that escalated quickly right? And according to Polygon, a Nintendo of America representative said “they’re actually going up there this week”. It’ll be a sight to behold to have both of them battle it out to claim the glory of being the best cow-milker. We just hope they’ll at least live stream the event to promote awareness about it, and who knows, we might even have a new eSports contest in the making.
