I live in the NE corner of Iowa and deer sleep on highways up here. ha couldnt help but chuckle about the cow. I hit one when I was in high school and I might suggest swerving to miss the cow if possible even though the farmers insurance is always liable for the cows being out. Thank god I was only going about 30 mph around a sharp corner or someone other than the cow would have been seriously hurt. They're massive and darn near impossible to move. Much like running into Wilfork or Sopoaga I imagine. You're much better off hitting the deer though than taking the ditch and risking a serious roll over or something like that. The cow had to be shot btw in case anyone was wondering. Anyone else hungry for steak?
