Fowler Brothers Farms had a livestock business of buying, selling
and shipping hogs to a packing house in Detroit along with buying, training and
selling pulling horses. At the same time they farmed over 1,000 acres and
maintained a large cow/calf herd.
The Fowler Brothers name is synonymous with well trained,
conditioned, harnessed and winning pulling teams. Jack and Bruce took
numerous horsemanship awards home. The Fowler Brothers established World
Heavyweight records in 1949, 1950, 1965, 1971 and 1989.
Our congratulations and thanks to the Fowler Brothers for their
lifelong dedication to horsepulling.
