    F.P. Bohanan of the Houston Fat Stock Show interviews the men and women showing the grand champion horses and shorthorn cattle at the 1959 show. Established in 1931, The Houston Fat Stock Show was the precursor to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, the world's largest event of its kind. The producer of this film, Jim W. Keeland, was a photographer and videographer in the Houston area for sixty years. He took photographs and films for Houston's NBC affiliate, KPRC-TV, from 1948 until 1961, worked for the Houston Post from 1951 to 1982 as a printer, and was a freelance photographer of agricultural subjects.
