Andy D-Day and the 2-Headed Calf

In the 1940's, the Rasor farm of Brookville, Ohio experienced a bit of a shock. A two-headed calf was born. Although it did not live, it appears that Rasor became obsessed with animal oddities. He had the two-headed calf stuffed and began searching high and low for other odd creatures. (My guess is that there was too much leaked radiation from the top secret Miamisburg atomic bomb facility down the road.)

Rasor achieved success when he finally found a bull named Andy D-Day. Born on June 6, 1944 on a farm in Fort Smith, Arkansas, Rasor had the unusual specimen brought to Ohio. Andy had four eyes, a double nose and four horns. Andy lived a long life in Ohio and like Wilbur and Babe, his uniqueness probably saved him from a trip to the slaughterhouse. The Rasors advertised Andy far and wide as evidenced by the number of postcards in existence. Rasor also had billboards erected up and down Route 40. For the admission price of two bits you could see the stuffed two-headed calf as well as feed Saltines to Andy.

Although I'm pretty sure the two-headed calf is now at Prairie Dog Town in Oakley, Kansas, I don't have a clue about Andy's fate. The Rasor family still lives in the Brookville area, but they have not answered my inquiries. Perhaps Andy is sitting in someone's rec room. Who knows! If you know Andy's fate, please contact me (frank@kingsfield.com).
