Posted: Updated:

Stew Leonard's grocery stores are celebrating a half-century in business, and they celebrated in a big way.

Gov. Ned Lamont invited a 1-year-old cow to Hartford to help the world's largest dairy store celebrate its 50th birthday.

Today, there are seven Stew Leonard's stores with nearly 2,000 employees.
