Perhaps the most popular of North Dakota’s giant roadside animal sculptures, Salem Sue – the World’s Largest Holstein Cow, stands large and in charge high above Interstate 94 just outside of the city of New Salem in western North Dakota. Erected in 1974 by the New Salem Lions Club to help promote area Holstein herds, Salem Sue was the second giant roadside animal sculpture built in North Dakota. No doubt the idea to erect such a large cow came from the extreme popularity of North Dakota’s first giant roadside animal – the World’s Largest Buffalo (Jamestown, North Dakota) erected 15 years earlier in 1959.
