World's Largest Holstein
For a nearly 40-year-old cow, Salem Sue is in excellent shape. The world’s largest fiberglass Holstein still attracts travelers on I-94 near New Salem, N. Dak. The 38-ft. tall, 50-ft. long cow can be seen for 5 miles from her perch on a hill. It’s worth the time to walk up the path to snap a photo and appreciate Sue’s view of miles of farmland.
  The New Salem Lions Club commissioned the $40,000 sculpture from Sculpture Mfg. Co. of Lacrosse, Wis., in 1974. Sue arrived in three parts (12,000 lbs. total) and was paid for by local dairymen, businessmen and residents, who wanted to honor and advertise their booming dairy industry.
