Record level- This series contains fifty-nine images of Hopi sheep herders and their flocks. Also pictured is Eugene Lowery from the U.S. Extension Service, as he inspects the sheep and discusses pest control. Several photographs show the sheep owners segregating the animals that are to be sold in compliance with the Livestock Reduction Program; many images depict the corralling, loading into trucks, transporting, and unloading of those sheep. Other scenes portray Wayne Taylor's place at Burro Springs, Second Mesa; the ram pasture at Keams Canyon; the Santa Fe Railroad stock yards in Holbrook; and the Wepo-Polacca Spreading Area. The Hopi men portrayed are Sam Shingoitewa, Ned Lomayestewa, Earnest Moore, Owen of Mishongnovi, Percy Botala, Louis Tewanema, and one herder referred to only as Howard.
