“Worlds Largest Holstein Cow”
Salem Sue (or The World's Largest Holstein Cow) is a large fiberglass holstein cow sculpture located in New Salem, North Dakota. Salem Sue was built in 1974 for $40,000. The project was sponsored by the New Salem Lions Club in honor of the local dairy farming industry. The statue stands 38 feet high and is 50 feet long. It sits on School Hill near Interstate 94 off exit 127 S and can be viewed for several miles.
Nice stop between Bismarck and Medora. No bathrooms at the cow's location, but a great view! (Two gas stations right off highway for potty/refreshments)
Awesome!! 3 kids 5 and under and they loved it!! Do the 10 min hike up the hill for the view and oxygen!!
It’s a giant cow in the middle of nowhere. Obviously it was great.
What a fun stop. She is large and in charge on top of a hill with a great view of the surrounding countryside and surprisingly popular, so you may have to wait a few minutes for a photo opportunity.
Pretty awesome and huge!!!! The little trail gives a beautiful view as well and isn't hard at all!!
1 minute off freeway to dirt road, then a mile or less up road to top of hill. They ask for a $1 donation per car for upkeep - it's worth it and it is really, really big
I love that cow.
worth stop! Great view!!
What a cow! Fun little stop with a neat view point over the prairie!
Great stop, but be warned it is a one lane switchback gravel road. We did it with a crew cab truck and 22 foot trailer. We had just enough room to turn around at the top and come back down - inconveniencing everyone. Still worth it.
