Steer Montana the largest steer in the world

The World’s Largest Steer can be found at Baker, Montana at the O’Fallon Museum.  Weighing in at 3,980 pounds, he grew to be 5’9″ tall and 10’4″ long.  Born March 23, 1923 just east of Baker, Montana, the steer lived for 15 years and 4 months. Raised by Jack Guth, a former jockey, the steer  toured local stock shows and circuses when he was alive.  After he died, his hide was preserved.  Steer Montana disappeared for many years, but was finally discovered in a storage facility in Billings and donated to the O’Fallon Museum.
