Albert the Bull
Driving along Hwy. 71 in western Iowa between Carroll and Atlantic, it’s hard to miss Albert the Bull. I mean, he’s said to be the World’s Largest Bull, and who am I to doubt that claim?
Albert is kind of cute and funny…for an enormous concrete bull. He’s 30 feet tall and 33 feet long, weighs 45 tons, and has blue eyes. He stands in a park on the south side of town.
The big bull was named after Albert Kruse, who originated Operation T-Bone, a salute to the Iowa beef industry. He was built in 1963 by the Audubon Junior Chamber of Commerce.
