Jo grabbed this shot of “Sterlina The Cow” at the Fulton County Fairgrounds in Wauseon, Ohio.
Sterlina is a 14′ fiberglass cow (fabricated in the mid-70’s) that once served as a mascot for the Sterling Dairy (and later the Sterlina Pride Dairy Cooperative). She played quite a role in the rise — and fall — of this small town dairy. Unfortunately, the Sterlina Pride Dairy Cooperative went out of business (again) in early 2010.
