You can see this cow from afar. You can photograph it as you drive by. There is not a place to drive up to it as far as I know, but why anyway.

If you have a little time to spare, don't miss Salem Sue! It doesn't look that big from the highway, but it's actually huge! I'm not sure why they made it, but it's a fun stop and the local town keeps it clean and well...More

Just a fun thing to do! You get to say, "I saw Salem Sue the World,s Largest Holstein Cow." The view from the cow is awesome.

What else are you going to see in North Dakota? It breaks up the monotony of the road. Picnic table available for a quick bite. Good place to get out of the car and stretch your legs.

Stopped by with friends to check out the cow she's pretty large. Climbed the hill behind her nice view from the top.

My animal-loving toddler had a great time running around beneath Sue and "mooing" at her. The husband and I enjoyed the chance to stretch our legs and take in the views from Sue's well-maintained hilltop.
