Great to know that although Kinnett dairies is no longer there, that the city allowed Kadie to stay. I remember going to see her (and her baby which is no longer there) and just amazed at how tall she was overlooking the highway. Every kid would enjoy seeing one of this city's staples. Hell adults will like it too! LOL!

Columbus Landmark that is in the Parking Lot of Best Buy. Kadie is the remaining icon of a past dairy farm previously here. If you like taking photos of landmarks then this is one of them if your in the area.

KD is still there... A remnant from a dairy that was there before the Mall, but it is cool that it survived. Just don't think that there is anything to it - no park, no rides... Just a big cow statue in a parking lot! But we still love her.

Why is this a tripadvisor "attraction??" Its in the best buy parking lot... why? I think there is some connection to a local dairy, none the less it seems silly that this is considered an attraction. Maybe cool for small children if they like animals.

Kadie used to stand on the hill in front of the old Kinnett's Dairy location, now occupied by Best Buy. For decades she was a landmark, at what was pretty much the North entrance to Columbus, long before I-185 or Peachtree Mall were built. After the dairy closed, Katie was removed for some years before being returned to her original... More

Many years ago Kinnett Dairies was where BestBuy is now. As a dairy they had a large cow statue as their mascot. When the land was sold to BestBuy, Kadie (KD-for Kinnett Dairies,) agreed to let Kadie stay in her original location. For a while there was a smaller cow statue, from the Kinnett Dairies downtown offices, set up there... More

She is not much but a land mark that everyone knows in this area for a lot of years. She had a Calf but someone stole it and never brought it back. She now stands by the Best Buy but was the symbol for Meadow Gold Milk when the plant was there. Hope that Columbus never lets her go away.

What's left of the old Kinette farm is Kadie the Cow. It would have been nicer and more fun for the kids if they made that area into a museum or park, instead of leaving in the parking lot of the retail store Best Buy! .. strange...

Before Best Buy, there was a dairy here. Kinnett Dairy - thus, "KD" or "Kadie", the cow. I toured it on a school field trip years ago. When the dairy went out of business, Columbus-ians fought to keep the beloved mascot, and her baby that once stood below her, in place. The baby cow was stolen a few years ago.... More
