In The Courier this week

Hand milking a cow proved to be thirsty work for former Adelaide Crows premiership player Kym Koster, above, who mustered all of his childhood milking experience to squeeze about two cups of milk from the bulging udder of his Ayrshire during the Meadows Country Fair Celebrity Udder Tug on Sunday.

Racers on notice

Hidden speed cameras will be used to target dangerous motorcyclists across the Hills over summer.
Police will use the covert cameras as just one tactic in their campaign against motorcyclists who flout the law and use the region’s roads as a racetrack.
Operation Safe Hills, launched this month, will target riders who ignore road safety and run until April 2018.
SA Police Assistant Commissioner Bronwyn Killmier said a small number of riders continued to put themselves and other road users in danger.
