The Turkey Hill Cows are always a pleasure to see at ice cream promotions, festivals, or in parades, but when one of these dear girls is on the road, and you just catch a glimpse of her rolling along in the distance, well, that's one of the good things about Lancaster County.

Big black and white cow on a trailer at the Turkey Hill dairy farm in Conestoga, Lancaster County. Cow was at the top of the hill, in a back parking lot that we reached via a one-way street.

An update about the Big Cow: there's a school up the road from us in Manheim that has a benefit auction and chicken barbecue every year. For the second year in a row, the Turkey Hill cow has made an appearance. This year, we took pictures! I'm including the second picture to show the speaker under its chin. I guess it speaks or makes some sort of noise, but we've never heard it udder a sound. ;o)
