Calf Tote (Ray E. Watkins Jr.)

When Jim Stuart, Roodhouse, Illinois, needs to move a new mama and calf to another pasture, he does it by way of an old bulk tank crate. He tips the crate on its side, encourages the calf inside and rights it again. The crate slides on a pair of 2 x 4 runners, the cow following right behind.
