This footage captures scenes of the Bluebonnet Farm in McGregor, a farm and ranch property that served as a Texas agricultural experiment station as part of the Texas A&M College System. Scenes include faculty and students on the property and extensive footage of various cattle breeds, including individual bulls, cows, heifers, and calves that are under observation as part of ongoing research. Bluebonnet Farm was established in 1947 on 17,483 acres but was reduced to 6,372 acres in 1952. It still serves as a research center today as part of the Texas A&M College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, now named McGregor Research Center.
