Having cows appearing in pinball-games was an internal joke for the people at Williams/Bally.
It all started with the pinball game "Fire!" from 1987, a game about the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. A fire which is said to have been started by a cow knocking over a kerosene lantern.
The cow was then included in the game (see "Fire!" section below).
And since Williams/Bally pinball games were made in Chicago the cow became some sort of mascot.

Also look out for these things: the red button with a telecord (appears in Pat Lawlor-designed games), Skull and crossbones, Champagne glasses, 3, "SM", DOHO (Documented Occurrences of Hidden Objects (this is just a guess, only a few people
at Williams know for sure)), "Feel The Power", Bob, "Eat at Joe´s" and the artist/designer himself.

Explanation: xL: press left flipper button x times.
                   xR: press right flipper button x times.
                   xS: press start button x times.
                    B: press both flipperbuttons.

KMIEC appears on the playfield near the right flipper (near the head of a robot). Greg Kmiec designed Xenon.

Someone told me that HUDSON appears on the other side (near the left flipper (near the head of a robot). I don't know who Hudson is, I know that Paul Faris did the artwork so I don't think it's likely that Margaret Hudson's name appears on this playfield.
