Giant Cow - Gone

Sadly, Roberts Dairy has downsized, closed this location, and moved the cow to whereabouts unknown...

Giant Cow - On the Mooove?

We visited Robert's Dairy property, but no cow to be found. We were told that the cow is on a trailer so they can transport it to parades and such, so maybe the cow was in transit...too bad!

Giant Cow

There's a giant cow statue in front of Robert's Diary on Dodge Street in Iowa City, IA. They dress it up for holidays - Christmas bells, halloween stuff, etc. It's gone during State Fair Week in August (presumably it's at the State Fair).
