Elsie the Bull

This cow was bought for Elsie from a local dairy farm. It was a black angus that was repainted and placed on Main Street. It has not moved since then. The cow that is in the parades is named Daisy, and she belongs to Green's Dairy Farm outside of Elsie.

This is my hometown, I believe I know about it.

Elsie the Bull

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.

Elsie the Cow

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!

From the photos we've seen, Elsie's cow is actually a bull.
