“What’s being towed behind that truck? Holy cow, it’s a giant cow!”
Many times while transporting Daisy to events, members hear comments about how big she is or how they can’t believe a cow is traveling down the road. Daisy typically draws a lot of attention and makes a big impression everywhere she visits. Members say she helps start consumer conversations about dairy farming.
In the summer of 2018, Daisy visited 18 fairs, festivals, parades, farmers markets and farm tours all over Michigan. Some were quick day trips and some overnight stays but regardless of how long Daisy visited, she could easily be spotted standing over 11 feet tall on her trailer.
MMPA members were challenged to use the large fiberglass cow in their summer dairy promotion efforts and to share their experiences. We tracked her movements from event to event all over Michigan totaling almost 2,500 miles in just five months. Daisy made lots of new friends and was welcomed back by old pals in 2018 and is already looking forward to next year. Members interested in reserving Daisy for 2019 should call 248-474-6672, ext. 202.
