Iowa cows are getting a lot of attention online these days.
"She's won seven shows," said Pete Burmeister, Lautner Farms spokesman.
But it was a photo posted to the website reddit.com that took this cow from popular to world-wide sensation.
Lautner Farms in Adel had the original photo on their website and before they knew it, fluffy went viral.
"It happens quick no doubt about it," said Burmeister.
For Sadie's stylist, Ashtyn Danker, the whole beauty queen bit is just a 4H project.
"I think it's pretty crazy that it just started from farm kids showing cattle," said Danker.
The cows get washed about one a week and then with soap. Other days they get a rinse to keep the fluffy look.
The Lautner Farm has a Facebook page called "Fluffy Cows R Us." It was started about two weeks ago and already has more than 18,500 likes.
