A cow is shown to the crowd during the Miss Milk Cow beauty contest at Moc Chau plateau, Vietnam on Friday. The beauty contest selects cows with solid torsos, high legs and provide the most milk. This year, 126 cows have been chosen for the contest among the 18,000 cows in Moc Chau. Miss Milk Cow beauty contest has been held at Moc Chau plateau for over a decade to promote local dairy products as the diet of Vietnamese people rapidly changed with higher income. REUTERS/Kham
