"Gertrude" the Guernsey Cow
This is "Gertrude" the Guernsey Cow, located at the Childrens Farm at Lockwood Park in Rockford. Probably one of the biggest roadside attractions [or at least, cows] in the state of Illinois. She is 21 feet from nose to tail, and stands 19 feet high from horns to hoof. Now that's a lot of milk.[Brad Johnson, 10/01/2005]
