The covered Cylindrical Hoppers were perfect for carrying fodder to all the rural farmlands of our America! Many being compartmented, allowed several different feeds to be transported in one haul.

After WWII, American Car and Foundry (ACF) designed a tank-type "Center Flow" covered hopper car to carry "modern" products. Here was a "Freight Car for the Future," ready to transport sugar, cement, sand, salt, fertilizers, many types of grains, coke, starch, feeds, chemicals and plastics!

In 1894, William H. Danforth began producing feed for various farm animals under the name Purina Mills. The predominant brand for each animal was generally referred to as "Chow"; hence there was "Purina" Horse, Dog, Cat, Rabbit, Pig and even Monkey "Chow". in 1902, he merged with university professor Webster Edgerly, a producer of breakfast cereals, to form the "Ralston Purina Co.". In 1998 it was purchased by Koch Industries and in 2001 by Land O'Lakes.

Our universal Farm and Ranch cylindrical represents the myriad tractor, farm equipment/accessory and feed stores which dot our countryside from the North, South, East and West! Separately owned, they are a common and necessary part of rural life.
