Moo-La the Cow

Field review by the editors.

Stephenville, Texas

Moo-La is the name of the fiberglass Holstein cow statue in the center of Stephenville. Erath County is the "No. 1 Dairy County in Texas." Moo-La is not particularly large, when compared to battleship-sized bovines like ND's Salem Sue. Still, she is an important tribute to the local dairy industry, perched on a pole along the street since she was first installed on September 23, 1972, in front of the Erath County Courthouse.

Unfortunately, that No. 1 in Texas claim may not stand for much longer, as dairy businesses move west. But Moo-La isn't going anywhere; in fact, the town gave her a complete restoration and makeover in 2022.
