Title

Flato Commission Company Cattle Sales Account, March 30, 1899

Description

This account acknowledges the sale of 40 steers to a party F.J. Nelson, Ms Wilberger's grandfather, was a drover for. This document is evidence of Omaha's stockyards and livestock market growth at the end of the 19th century as well as cattle prices at that time. Thus, F. J. Nelson paid $1835.39 (about $47,000 today) for 40 cattle, almost $100 out of which were freight and back charges, yardage, inspection, commission, and hay.
