Beef King of Meats Bull

Last night (6-7-10), Minatare had a severe thunderstorm with a possible tornado, and the "big cow," as we call it here in Minatare, was pulled from his platform and broken into about 4 pieces. R.I.P. Big Cow, you will be missed...

Beef - King of Meats

Beef, King of Meats

A large, but slightly dumpy looking statue of a bull, emblazoned with the message "Beef. King of Meats." The bull is at roadside in front of Minatare Feedlot Inc.

Nice looking bull, though it seems unhappy about something. Maybe it doesn't like to be used to advertise beef?
