Years ago a lot of fat cattle around here went to Chicago. A lot of the old guys talk about buying car loads of feeders, but most of the fats were shipped by truck. One old neighbor Dave said when he was a little boy his uncle would buy car loads of cattle then divide them up when they got here, so if a farmer only wanted half a load someone else got the other half. Dave had a pony and would drive cattle from the train depot to the farmers. Everyone still had fences along the road then, so someone went ahead and blocked the driveways. It was easy.
