My grandfather Anton raised several hundred cattle and pigs over several decades on 5000 acres on the North Star Route near Long Pine, Nebraska. This was after he spent several years in the packing houses in Chicago after emigrating from his family home in Tarnow, Poland, before World War I. He and his brother Andrew homesteaded there in the Sand Hills digging sod huts out of the prairie before he built a house and large barn. I remember him hand milking his cows on a one legged stool in that barn along with my uncles. He raised his family of 10 children along with my grandmother Agnes along with the chickens and pigs and cows and the fields of hay and corn to feed the animals. In the old days, they cut the fields of hay with horse drawn mowers and stacked it with horse drawn wooden hay ricks. Later the fields were cultivated with iron rimmed tractors which were eventually replaced with the modern John Deere variety.
