Indiana Dairy Farmer Ready To Continue Hallowed Tradition Indy 500 Winner’s Circle

INDIANAPOLIS – When dairy farmer Jill Houin of Plymouth, Indiana, was the “rookie” milk person in Victory Lane at last year’s 103rd Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge, she soaked in the color, pageantry and excitement of Simon Pagenaud’s victory celebration. Instead of handing the bottle of milk to the winner of the Indy 500 on May 24, the race was moved to Aug. 23. There won’t be hundreds of thousands of fans at IMS to see Houin hand over the milk to the winner of the 104th Indianapolis 500. Houin is the American Dairy Association Indiana’s 2020 Milk Woman of the year. “This year, I’m the veteran milk person handing it to the winner. There are 4,900 cows on the farm that are milked by 14 family members of the fourth-generation dairy farm. There are many iconic traditions that come with winning the Indianapolis 500, from the Borg-Warner Trophy to the winner’s wreath to the traditional bottle of milk that goes to the winner.
