How big are the full-size cows and what are they made of?
Each full-size cow is affixed to a wooden base that is 82” long by 41” wide and approximately 6” tall. Please note: the actual cow may be up to 95” long (depending on orientation, the cow’s head may extend past the base).

Who is responsible for transporting the cow to its new home?
The buyer will be responsible for picking up their cow in the Greater Boston area or covering transportation fees for professional delivery.
- If the buyer would like to pick up the cow in their own vehicle, they must coordinate a date/time with Jimmy Fund staff. Pick-ups will be scheduled between September 5 through September 11.
- If the buyer would prefer to hire a professional mover to transport their cow, the Jimmy Fund team will be happy to introduce you to a recommended moving partner. Buyers will be responsible for all costs associated with delivery of the cow. Estimated transportation fees begin at $500 and will vary depending on the delivery location.
Where should I display my cow after it’s delivered?
Past purchasers have displayed their cows indoors and outdoors, including at their primary residences and second homes, their businesses (lobby/front desk areas, restaurants, retail locations, etc.), and other creative locations. You could also consider arranging your cow to be donated to a local hospital, playground, or community organization.
