Cow (Buttercup) and Calf (Daisy)
Built: 1986 (Daisy), 1987 (Buttercup)
The monument was built as an attraction in front of the Irving Oil Limited bulk plant to acknowledge that Sussex is the "Dairy Centre of the Maritimes".
Originally placed on Highway #1 in front of the Irving Oil Bulk Plant facility (the first thing you see when you come into the community) but was moved due to a government highway improvement project.
Daisy and Buttercup are holstein cows.
Harold MacEachern also created the Moose in Goobies, Nfld and the Moose in Deer Lake, Nfld.
There are statues in front of other Irving Stations throughout the Maritimes including: Moose in Goobies, Nfld, Moose in Deer Lake, Nfld, Deer in Plaster Rock, NB, Silver Fox in Salisbury, NB, and Blueberry in Oxford, NS.
