High on a hill in North Dakota (they are few and in-between) overlooking the small community of New Salem is a tribute to the local farming community
Salem Sue (or The World’s Largest Holstein Cow) is a large fibreglass 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 honour of the local dairy farming industry.
The statue stands 38 feet (12 m) high and 50 feet (15 m) long. It sits on School Hill near Interstate 94 off exit 127 S and can be viewed for several miles.
