Salem Sue
New Salem, ND
Salem Sue is 38 feet tall and 50 feet long, making it the world's largest cow. The statue was designed by Dave Oswald and built in 1974 by Sculptured Advertising for nearly $40,000. The statue overlooks I-94 from the top of the town's tallest hill. For more, see this website. [map]

Cow [gone]
Guelph, ON
The Cow in Guelph stood in front of Lely Canada, a robotic milking company. The cow's markings represent a world map on one side and North America on the other. Inside the company's office, there were several smaller calves with similar markings and another life-sized cow. These photos are from 2007. By 2009, Lely and the statue were gone.

There is a cow in Lynnfield, MA that has these same map paint job. I assume that it came from the same manufacturer as the statues that were in Guelph. However, it's possible that maybe the ones in Canada were sold and this one wound in in Massachusetts.

Bensalem, PA
Cows [gone]
Salem, CT
This Calf statue is installed in front of Moo's Soft Serve. It has been there since at least 2008. It might even have been installed in 2000 when Moo's opened. [map]

This Cow statue in Bensalem grazes in front of Lou's Farm Mart. [map]

The Cows in Salem were located at Salem Feed & Grain when this photo was taken in 2009. There was also a fiberglass rooster and a rearing horse statue. I think these cow statues are gone now.

Cow & Bull
Omro, WI
These Cow and Bull statues stand in the parking lot of Colonial Cheese House & Gifts. [map]

Cow [gone]
Vergennes, VT
Cows [gone?]
Orlando, FL
This approximately life-sized Cow statue in Vergennes stood in front of the Kennedy Bros. Factory Marketplace. This photo is from 2007. By 2012, the statue was gone.

These life-sized Cows in Orlando stood in front of a medical center when I took these photos in 2005. I thought that there might have been a dairy there previously but a local man swore the cows had only been there a few months. Those heavy chains appeared new although the cows needed paint. I didn't make note of where they were located. Does anyone know where these statues are or were?

Lawrence Township, NJ
There are about a dozen, life-sized Cows at Halo Farm. [map]

Fort Worth, TX
Cow [gone]
Avondale, PA
This Cow statue in Fort Worth was installed around 2019 in front of the Vandervoort Dairy. She is named Henryetta after the founder, Henry Carl Vandervoort, Sr. The dairy plant has been owned and operated by Kroger since 1970. [map]

This Cow statue in Avondale was located at El Rancho Meat & Produce. It had been painted the colors of the Mexican flag. The restaurant occupies the previous Avon Grove Diner, a Mountain View from 1952, which is now covered with wooden shingles. This photo is from 2007. By 2009, the wagon was still there but the cow and horse statues were gone.

Winter Garden, FL
Kalispell, MT
This Cow statue in Winter Garden has been there since 2009. "Violet" is the mascot for Purple Cow Productions which is located in the building behind her. [map]

This Cow statue in Kalispell was installed at the Blue Cow Car Wash around 2008. [map]

Mattress Ranch
Chehalis, WA

Mattress Ranch
Olympia, WA

Mattress Ranch
Port Orchard, WA
Mattress Ranch has four locations in Alaska and seven locations in Washington. Around 1999, these stores began displaying the ranch theme with plywood animal cut-outs. Since around 2005, many of these locations have also been featuring an eye-catching abundance of cow and other animal statues. [Chehalis map]

By 2022, it appeared that only the statue left in Olympia was the one on the right which had been painted blue. [map]

By 2022, it appeared that only five cow statues were left at the Port Orchard location. [[map]
