Wednesday, October 3, 2012

Carlson Family Cattle Company Black Jack 001, known as "Beefy" to his family, defended his title of Supreme Champion Bull at the 2012 Clay County Fair. On the way to his Supreme Champion Bull, "Beefy" also won the title of Grand Champion Angus Bull. In 2011, "Beefy" was named Grand Champion Angus Bull at the Iowa State Fair and Clay County Fair and also received the honor of the Iowa Angus Bull of the Year. "Beefy" is pictured with, left to right, Mark Carlson, Jan Carlson, Britt Carlson and Katie Cedar of Cherokee. Beefy tipped the scales at just under one ton (2,000 pounds) last year but was not weighed at this year's Clay County Fair because lightning had previously struck the scale, rendering it out of commission this year. Britt estimates Beefy's weight now as "well over" one ton. Photo contributed
