This mural features Tony Jansma (1934-2004), founder of Jansma Cattle Co., at its peak, one of the nation's largest order buying/feeder operations in the nation.  In addition to Tony and cattle, the mural shows his father, Walter; one of the firm's semi-trailers which criss-crossed the country hauling cattle; and the company plane which transported Tony to and from sales throughout the western states.
