      "This structure housed the first cows to arrive on campus, shipped by train from Ontario to Saskatoon in 1911. These animals numbered 16, but William Rutherford, the College of Agriculture's first dean, felt more were needed to provide milk for student residences and specimens for judging classes. Rather than have the cattle travel alone this time, the farm's foreman, Tom Brydon, was instructed to accompany 20 new cattle from Ontario to Saskatoon in 1912.
      Judging by journal entries Brydon kept during his travels, the trip from Ontario to Saskatoon was a memorable one. There was no room for the cattle to sleep during the journey's first leg, and a terrier pup along for the ride was stolen in Winnipeg. According to Marlene Fehr, current research assistant with the College of Agriculture, Brydon's travels have been a source of considerable lore over the years. "
