Hi Folks,
Along with Maytag, Newton,Iowa.
And just for information, The Amana Colonies,(Amana Industries)
was/is a commune of which there are four small towns. Each one
provides something for the whole.
Griffen Foundry and Pipe, Blue Bell school buses, John Deere,
Catapiler (Heavy Equipment) Motorhomes. Besides being the number one
state in corn and hog production.

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.
