This Adohr Milkmaid sculpture was created in the 1920s. It was originally located in Tarzana, CA. The sculpture was one several built to advertise for the Adohr Farms Creamery Co. It is the only one left. In 1969, the sculpture was moved to the dairy company in Tulare that bought out Adohr Farms. By the 1990s, the sculpture was in bad shape. It has since been restored and now stands in front of Saputo Dairy Foods. - "Largest Guernsey herd in the world"

Adohr milkmaid statue, Herman Schultheis, ca.1937 | "The Largest Guernsey Herd in the World" In 1916 Rhoda & Merritt Adamson established a dairy farm named Adohr at 18000 Ventura Blvd. in Tarzana. Land was slowly sold during the depression. In 1948 the remaining 500 acres were sold when the dairy farm moved to Camarillo. That farm was sold in 1969. Only the milkmaid statue remains, stored in a Tulare County processing plant, CA. - Shirley Temple's calf, Tillie, from Tillamook was there in 1935.

Jamie Hitchcock does touch-up work on the cow [and milkmaid] that is part of the sculpture in front of Saputo Dairy Foods, 605 No. J St. The statue is one of 25 that Adohr Farms commissioned in 1927 and placed at its creamery sites, including the one in Tulare. - "Largest Guernsey herd in the world" - Oct. 2, 2014, Tulare Voice
