A durable member of the Daggett Truck Line fleet from 50 years ago is still in shape for parades and other events. President Fred Daggett stands by a 1963 International that had half the horsepower of current workhorses. Daggett's 220-horsepower trucks in the 1950s and 1960s pulled about 80 livestock trailers throughout the Midwest and Canada. The Hereford representation on the wall was also duplicated in the logos on the rigs' doors. Photo by John W. Dermody
