I have a Turkey Hill Cow already (see below) but it was a traveling cow on a trailer. That is what I expected to find here. Instead I found a much larger version of the cow. Much like the many cows we’ve found elsewhere. The Turkey Hill Experience is an admission charge museum type venue located in Columbia, Pennsylvania just off US-30.

On our way to Saugatuck for our Fall Break trip, purchase physician we stopped by the Sherman Dairy Bar in South Haven to grab this image of Blue Moo and Baby Moo located on top of the business. We had a big breakfast in Kokomo a couple hours earlier or I might have dropped in for a strawberry cone.

On our way out of State College, look PA after spending the night and having breakfast at Ye Old College Diner (leaving with Sticky Buns in hand of course) we took Business 322 to get on US-322. Right before we got there, we spotted this bull atop Kelly Steak and Seafood. A restaurant in Boalsburg, PA. Another nice find!

Early Friday morning we were traveling from our mountain-top cabin in Gatlinburg through Pigeon Forge on our way home and spotted this Big Steer. Naturally we circled back and grabbed this opportunity. I love getting these unplanned Big Things. In this case it was a restaurant featuring beef and fish. Looked like a nice place from the outside, unfortunately we spent our time in Gatlinburg and didn’t get a chance to sample the menu here. If you stay in Pigeon Forge you might want to try the “Bullfish Grill.”

Freddy Hill Farms is more than the name implies. We stopped by with Andy and Lindsey to get some fresh milk to make cheese, but soon fell prey to the many delicious ice cream varieties, even though it was December. The Seipt family learned how to make rich ice cream while at Penn State, but they have added many more reason to visit. They have a mini-golf course, driving range, pro shop and more. Lucky Andy lives nearby Freddy Hill’s located on Sunneytown Pike in Lansdale, PA. Stop in if you want some super rich ice cream.

Next to the Corn Palace Motel at the corner of Burr and Havens is this Big Steer advertising Chef Louie’s Steakhouse. After checking in to our hotel we came back to eat at Chef Louie’s which was a very good decision. We had an excellent dinner in a super pleasant environment. I wish it were closer to home.

The Anderson Erickson Dairy in Des Moines, Iowa has these two, Annie and Eric standing out front at the corner of University and Hubble. This is a nice twosome, one not normally seen. Generally I only find the larger mother cow. Eric was added later. More information on the Annie and Eric and the Anderson Erickson Dairy can be found here. Enjoy!

On the way back from Thanksgiving at Meg and Greg’s (thanks for the hospitality by the way!) we dropped down on I-275 to Ecorse Rd west (M-17) to get this cow. I’ve got lot’s of cows on this site as you can see below. This Carry Dairy cow is on top of a building that is not exactly a dairy. More of a “Party Store” as they are called in Michigan. Selling beer (of course), wine, cigarettes, milk and lottery tickets there are a plenitude of places like this. This almost like the drive thru beer stores in Ohio, note the One Way sign to my right. No expense spared!
Both of these Bulls are on Market Street in Logansburg, IN. The one on the left is in front of Haps Old Fashioned Ice Cream Sundae Parlor and the guy of the right is next to Mr. Happy Burger. I would guess they have common ownership, notice they both have bibs on. It was too early in the day to get a banana split and the burger joint wasn’t open yet.

Meet Gertrude the Guernsey Cow. Looks an awful lot like Sissie the Cow just below. Maybe they’re related? Anyway, she was the last Animal we visited on our Wisconsin trip. Gertrude is actually near Rockford, Illinois in Lockwood Park. I’ll have to say that 4 days of Big Thing hunting was pretty exhausting. When Deb asked me what the next object was and I told her a Big Cow, she replied, “Another cow?” I knew at that point we should head home, and we did!

Let me introduce you to Sissy the Cow in DeForest Wisconsin. She is in front of Ehlenbach’s Cheese Chalet just off I90/94 exit 126. Nice cow and an even nicer cheese store. We spent some time inside and, of course, bought some cheese.
