Holstein Bull Was a Troublemaker on the Family Farm
(Page 2 of 2)
The bull's owner was informed about this incident and he had the animal shipped off to the packing house the next day.
God certainly did answer our prayer for help. Twenty-seven years later as I talked with the neighbor about rescuing us she said, "It must have been the Lord, I couldn't see the road or the school-house from inside my home, but that morning I happened to go out early to feed my chickens and I saw you go into the entry with the bull after you."

Back in 1955 a call went out from the editors of the then Capper’s Weekly asking for readers to send in articles on true pioneers. Hundreds of letters came pouring in from early settlers and their children, many now in their 80s and 90s, and from grandchildren of settlers, all with tales to tell. So many articles were received that a decision was made to create a book, and in 1956, the first My Folks title – My Folks Came in a Covered Wagon – hit the shelves. Nine other books have since been published in the My Folks series, all filled to the brim with true tales from Capper’s readers, and we are proud to make those stories available to our growing online community.
