On Nebraska's small farms in the 1930s, nearly all families raised several kinds of animals. Horses and mules pulled farm equipment in the fields. Other animals were a source of money and food. Cows provided milk and meat. Chickens provided eggs and meat. Farmers raised hogs and cattle to sell for money and butchered a few animals to feed their families. Many small family farms were nearly self-sufficient until the drought made it hard to raise crops and feed and water farm animals.

1930's Farm Animals

In the story "Of Mice and Men", farm animals were not a major topic. But on California farms, animals were an important component to the business. In the story horses and mules pulled the reepers and Lennie repeatedly talked about bunnies.
