The Minden Hills museum could be getting a new type of visitor this summer. The township is looking at potentially bringing in livestock for a few days a week in July and August.

Cows, pigs, chickens or a goat will be on-hand to teach museum goers about the pioneer lifestyle, where food comes from, and what farm chores look like. The animals will stay at the museum and heritage village for a few hours a day before going back to the farm.

The township is working the Association for Living History Museums to make it happen.
