[Heather Knutson, 04/22/2001]

Steer Montana was part of "Meat Map USA" in New Roadside America. Raised by a former jockey east of town, SM used to tour local stock shows and circuses. When they found him dead, they "strung him up on a windmill," stripped the carcass, and preserved the hide in a tank of brine. Steer Montana disappeared for many years, but was finally discovered in a storage facility in Billings. The bill came to $5,000.
