Holland Farms Giant Cow Heads

The Holland Farms Giant Cow Heads are a popular photo spot. The cows have been an icon of the area for 65 years, as they were erected in 1955. The cows are occasionally dressed up, and even had face masks put on them for the COVID-19 outbreak.

[Brady Van Pelt, 04/04/2020]

In March 2020 the cow heads were outfitted with protective face masks.
