Albert, The World’s Largest Bull: Audubon, Iowa

Albert the Bull is located along side a trailer park in Audubon, Iowa. This nine times larger than life-size Hereford Bull is 53-year-old, and stands 28 feet tall. It is 15 feet wide between the horns, and weighs 45 tons; and, unlike most of the other big things I’ve found which are usually made from fiberglass, Albert the Bull is made from concrete with a steel work frame.

I was traveling alone when I passed by here, but I managed to waylay a passing teenager into taking my picture for me.

That said, there’s something equally imposing about Albert that you can’t see from the above photo….

Actually, come to think of it, he reminds me of a guy I know…
