True story. Fort Benning had a cattle ranch back in the day.

On this day in 1934, 1,039 head of cattle were delivered to Fort Benning via rail car. After a brief period of quarantine, they would join the 4,000 cattle already grazing on the post cattle ranch. The shipment was puny and dehydrated, but the post agriculture officials figured to have them fattened up in no time at all.

And then they would head to to chow hall for dinner. ;)
