About
herd MK

We are a not-for-profit project that enables the very best businesses of Milton Keynes to commemorate the 50-year birthday, as well as raising significant funds for some amazing local charities.

Not only that, the project will engage the people of Milton Keynes on so many different levels. The project will bring together businesses, schools, community groups, creative artists and the media.

As you know, Milton Keynes is synonymous with our beloved ‘concrete’ cows; attracting many visitors and bringing smiles to the locals. Thanks to constant media attention, they have become symbolically ‘Milton Keynes’! They are always creating a media stir and did so again recently when they were moved from CMK to Milton Keynes Museum; far away from many public eyes. The local media sites and printed press were in frenzy with residents and businesses alike giving their thoughts and opinions!

However, we are bringing cows back to MK to be enjoyed by everybody! Herd About MK will provide 50 life-sized, limited edition concrete cows for purchase exclusively by the businesses of Milton Keynes.
