The Smith Dairy cow, "Smitty," left her post for about a year for a much needed makeover in 2003 - 2004. She returned to her lofty vantage point on the silo in May 2004.

Towering Cow

The "Towering Cow" on top of the Smith Dairy milk silo in Downtown Orrville, Ohio that I reported a couple of years is no where to be found based on my visit in April 2003.

As you can tell -- and defying the odds that a two-ton mammal could actually surmount a 50-foot tower of milk byproducts using the metal handladder provided -- the Smith Dairy Twin Towers in downtown Orrville is more than adequately protected by the bovine sentinel. Not sure if this cow has a name, but it's definitely a landmark in this northeastern Ohio town that is also the home of Smucker's.
