Salem Sue the Cow.

World's Largest Cow

Sue is looking better than ever! She's a fun stop for kids, but not very accessible for people with mobility issues. It is a steep walk up to her.

Salem Sue in winter.

Salem Sue, World's Largest Holstein Cow

Must stop for world's largest aficionados. The road up wasn't plowed when we stopped in late December but she looked majestic all covered in snow! Have a moo-rific day!

Sue's Udders.

Salem Sue, World's Largest Holstein Cow

The town takes great care of Sue and she's definitely a "must see." There are even a few picnic tables nearby to enjoy a snack.

Pulled a trailer up to the top. One hairpin turn and room to turn around at the top, if not busy.
