Gray Percheron stallion

Description

Handler posing a gray Percheron stallion (most likely Elmer Koons with Jalap, the chief herd sire for Iowa State College [University] in the 1920's) in the front of the Old Cattle Barn.
The Old Cattle Barn was built of frame construction and gable style roof between 1861 and 1863, with subsequent additions thought to be completed in 1874. It originally measured 54 ft 70 feet, which included a 16 foot drive through alley, but was later expanded to include a perpendicular wing for additional storage. Materials used to build this barn included a stone foundation, wood siding and pine shingles. It housed approximately 50 cattle, feed and farm machinery. These structures were razed in 1929.
