Meet Samson

Sampson is my supervised agricultural experience (SAE) beef project for the 2015 Putnam County Fair.  He is a 12 month-old Black Angus steer I purchased from my great-uncle’s small beef ranch in Rochelle, FL.  Sampson currently weighs approximately 730 pounds and enjoys eating a ground mix of grain products and cottonseed byproducts, cattle cubes, a fly control mineral, and hay.  He especially enjoys treats such as carrots, apples and flavored horse biscuits.  Some days Sampson has a mind of his own, but most of the time he is an easy-going fellow who leads well.
