Vaccinating a cow   Save
Joe Munroe Archive
Description: Livestock are a huge investment for farmers, and taking preventative measures against loss was a necessity. Veterinarians were highly prized on farms and helped in a variety of ways, from delivering animals to vaccinating them. In this 1951 photograph by Joe Munroe, Dr. S.L. Saylor is vaccinating cattle on a farm in Ohio via an intravenous method. Joe Munroe's career began in 1939 at the Cranbrook Academy of Art. He served in the Air Force during World War II and then joined Cincinnati-based Farm Quarterly magazine. Though raised in Detroit, agriculture became an important subject of Joe's photographs. He moved to California in 1955 and free-lanced, taking magazine assignments and selling his own work. View on Ohio Memory.
