They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Well, to me this one is worth a million words.
This is my dad with his prize winning cattle. Some time around 1960.
I love everything about this picture. I love the judges up top, especially the one in the hat with the cigarette hanging out of his mouth. Look at the kids hiding out under the judges stand! I love the clothing, my favorite part being my dad’s shirt that’s hanging on with only three buttons. Look at my dad, he’s such a cutie pie.
Upon finding this picture the other night at my parent’s house, I got to hear many stories from my dad about raising cattle. He got around $.47 per pound for this beauty back in the day.
