Steer Has Map Of Ohio On Forehead
It was a pleasant surprise for Bob Mikesell, Frazeysburg, Ohio, when he and his son-in-law Allen Brinker brought home a load of cattle they'd bought in North Carolina and found a steer with what appeared to be a map of the state of Ohio on its fore-head.
"We took an Ohio map with us to the barn to check the outline," says Mikesell. "And there it was, about as perfect as you could expect to find."
Mikesell and Brinker made ear tags naming the steer "Buckeye" and have made it a pet in their feedlot.
"I doubt if the North Carolina farmer who sold the steer had any idea of the special shape of that white patch. It took a Buckeye to notice it," says Mikesell, who is a graduate of Ohio State University.
Plans for the steer are uncertain. Mikesell says he's not sure yet if he will slaughter "Buckeye" along with the other steers, or keep him as a pet.
