Title: A cow attempting to deceive the butcher by pretending to be a fairground attraction
Location: Tib Street
Artist: Michael Trainor
Sponsor: CowParade Manchester/Manchester City Council as part of the Cow-munity Scheme.

It’s a hard life being a cow, you’re cute and you’re dinner at one and the same time. Up in the Northern Quarter of the city centre there’s a cow which doesn’t mind the cute but wants to avoid turning up for Sunday lunch as the main event. In an area already distinguished by its range of recent and intriguing public artworks, Michael Trainor’s milker is using disguise to avoid the cleaver. This cow is powered by United Utilities.
