Jim Hill and Great Northern RR pt. 3

Sometimes Hill and Great Northern RR gave away pure-bred livestock, especially bulls, to a farmer they knew would farm wisely and be an example, to encourage others to buy land along railroad lines. Hill and G.N. wanted the farmers and small towns to succeed. Then the Great Northern Railway would prosper also. (from North Dakota Studies)
