Iowa Angus Show Bull of the Year

Wednesday, May 30, 2012

The Carlson Family Angus of Cherokee received the 2011 Iowa Angus Bull of the Year award at the 2012 Annual Iowa Angus Association banquet held in Des Moines this spring. The bull CFCC Black Jack 001 known as "Beefy" is the son of Silvieras El Capitan 6510. "Beefy" was raised by the Carlsons and shown and named by Katie Cedar, also of Cherokee, as a calf at the 2010 Cherokee County Fair and then as a yearling bull in 2011. Included in his victories that led to honor were Grand Champion Angus Bull at the Iowa State Fair and well as Grand Champion Angus Bull and Supreme Champion Bull at the 2011 Clay County Fair. This summer "Beefy" will be breeding cows in the Carlson's pasture. Photo contributed
