Pauline Wayne or “Miss Wayne,” as she was called, was a Holstein cow who was also First Cow. And by First Cow I mean, she was the Taft family pet. And by Taft family, I mean President William Howard Taft, the 27th President of the United States of America. Miss Wayne provided milk for the First Family and grazed around on the White House Lawn and the Eisenhower Executive Office Building (known then as the Navy Building). She had pretty high security clearance and didn’t take any bull.
