Beef cattle taking an insect and disease dip   Save
Joe Munroe Archive
Description: To help protect their investment, ranchers would sometimes put their cattle through what are known as "dips." These troughs were essentially chemical baths done during a cattle roundup to help ward off insects and diseases. Photographer Joe Munroe photographed these two steers at the 3V Ranch near Seligman, Arizona, in 1963. 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.
