Kadie has been up on the hill, overlooking I-185 for years. She started with Kinnett Dairy but when the dairy was torn down and Best Buy moved into that space, Kadie remained. For a while, Kadie had a calf join her but then the calf disappeared. Now Kadie sits alone keeping watch as if she is still on duty from... More

There was once a baby cow next to it but it was stolen and then found. Not sure if the little cow is there. This is not really... More

The Kaddie landmark is Columbus's answer to The Big Chicken landmark in Kennesaw/Marietta. This cow has been a landmark in this city, and used to be the Kennett Diary mascot/logo for decades. The dairy was where the Best Buy in Manchester Expressway (Exit 7) is now, and if you are a visitor to the area, this landmark very close to... More

Kaddie the cow has been a landmark in Columbus Ga for many years. She was put on site by the Kinnet dairy. After the dairy closed the land was sold and a Best Buy was built on the site. People still come to take their picture with Kaddie. Although it is really a 5 minute activity. But if you are... More

It's a concrete cow, painted black and white. If concrete cows, painted black and white turn you on, you'll be thrilled! Otherwise, it's a concrete cow!!

This cow is by a Best Buy off of Manchester Expressway. It's big. It's a cow. It's made of fiber glass.Take a picture to make your friends wonder why you took a picture of a cow! Obviously a great sense of humor is needed here!

So.. Stopping at Best Buy, what do I find? A gigantic cow! Not knowing what up with this of course I research and find that Kadie has a name and a history for this town! Cute, fun interesting turn of events and some eye candy for those who love a good steak! Ha!

Katie is a local legend. Her pasture was usurped by Big Buy, so she now stands on a grassy part of their real estate. Her calf, Bebe is located within the store, because of theft attempts. Kadie was the landmark for a local dairy/ice cream maker.
