Geocache Description:

Sculptor John Henry’s “Sioux City" , also locally known as the "French Fries” towers 50 feet into the air.
Just take a wild guess as to what this sculpture depicts , give up yet ! The sculpture, representing Iowa, Nebraska and South Dakota, was dedicated to Currier Holman, co-founder of Iowa Beef Backers (now Tyson Foods). IBP, as it later became known, revolutionized the meatpacking industry, including perfecting the "boxed beef'' concept in which small cuts of beef, rather than whole carcasses, were shipped in containers to wholesalers and retailers. Three states intertwined in the process of providing "boxed beef'' , the tastiest beef in the world !
