James Avery of Buckland, Massachusetts, made it his life work to breed the world's largest oxen. And he was successful. His largest ox, Mack, weighed 4,760 pounds when he died in 1906. Avery toured his oxen around the country from 1894 to 1906. At county fairs and other shows in New England and eventually across America, he set up a tent and sold admission. This poster promoted the oxen in the 1890s.
