Large poster for the sale of fifty-two head of cattle from the herd of noted Montana rancher A.B. Cook. Andrew B. Cook (1864-1928) was a Montana railroad contractor and internationally-known cattle breeder and rancher with a farm in Broadwater County. The poster features numerous images of cows, with the headliners being the "six great sires" Cuba's Panama, Beau Carlos, Fairfax 16th, Premier 3D, Panama 34th, and Panama 100th. Aside from its handsome bovines, the poster features lineage charts for two of the bulls, and a blurb about the superior breeding methods employed by Cook. The verso features a half-sheet headlined "Illustrating the Get of the Grand Champion Fairfax 16th in the Sale," and a quarter panel illustrating "Six of the Granddaughters of Cuba's Panama, All Sired by Panama 4th." Designed to be mailed. A fabulous piece of cattle advertising.
