The Bull Barn

Dr. Sarah Van Hoosen Jones built the Bull Barn in 1927. It housed the bulls, the most valuable animals in the herd. The bullpens allowed the bulls to exercise. Breeding stalls were added at the ends of three of the pens. The interior of the barn reveals that there was minimal contact between the farmers and the bulls. The mean temperament of the bulls kept every farm hand cautious around them. The most valuable bulls on the Van Hoosen Farm were Carnation, King Bessie Ormsby Pieterje 29th, and Montvic Rag Apple Baron.
