Visitor Tips and News About Towering Cow
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.[Denise A. Yoder, 02/11/2006]

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.
