We went to Elsie, MI to see Elsie the Cow. Elsie is a bull, but in a small farm town named Elsie, what else could it be named? Elsie is ready for Christmas, with a wreath hanging from the neck.[Jim Boylan, 11/10/2009]
Big fiberglass cow right in main street in this small rural town. This is the town mascot. The only questionable part is Elsie is usually a dairy cow and this one seems to be missing those parts. Free to see and very available for pictures![ljs, 03/26/2005]
From the photos we've seen, Elsie's cow is actually a bull.
