Sissy the Cow in DeForest, Wisconsin

Speaking of large fiberglass cows (such as Bessie The Cow In Janesville, Wisconsin)… Just down the street from the Pinkie the Pink Elephant in Glasses tourist attraction is another large fiberglass animal: Sissy the Cow at Ehlenbach’s Cheese Chalet in DeForest, Wisconsin.

Sissy cow is a two-ton black and white Holstein that stands at 19 feet tall by 20 feet long and lives outside of Ehlenbach’s Cheese Chalet in DeForest, Wisconsin. The statue was erected in 1969 and named Sissy after the store’s first owner: Lucille (Sis) Ehlenbach.

While this Wisconsin roadside attraction used to let out some rather loud moos, and does have the remains of a speaker in her gullet, alas the speaker system no longer works and she no longer can make any sounds. I guess it’s a good thing though, because who could imagine how large of a “moo” a cow of this size would belt out. It would be an UDDERly amazing sound, I’m sure!
