Quoting lodged@mindspring.com:

There was, and is, a lot of manufacturing done in Iowa. Farm equipment
as
well as consumer goods. Not just corn and hogs and, yes, sheep.

Having raised Polled Dorsets for twenty years I'm well aware of the
sheep, Don, due to the fact that the records for the breed were maintained
by a woman in Hudson, Iowa for many years until the late 1990's. The GSC flats
are too late for someone with a 12-31-1948 cutoff date but there must be some
boxcar load other than grain. Guess that can do if need be, however.
