Auðumbla is a primordial cow.
It is said that the cow Auðumbla's tears produced four rivers of milk, from which Ymir fed. She licked salty rime stones for sustenance. Auðumbla once licked the salt for three days, revealing Búri: The first day she licked free his hair, the second day his head, and the third day his entire body.
