Description by OLDIES.com:
This heartwarming story of a girl's devotion to her pet Angus steer is an inspiring one. She conquers polio and her lack of faith in herself to turn her steer into a champion.
Tommie Jo is devoted to caring for and raising her pet calf. She is trying her best to reer the steer into becoming a prize-winning calf at shows outside of her small town in Texas. Suddenly, Tommie Jo becomes stricken with polio and looses the use of her legs. This brings her confidence level low enough to think she can no longer care for her pet until she gets a special visit from a town minister who helps her to regain her faith in God as well as the use of her legs. Soon after winning the top prize in Chicago, Tommie Jo regains her spirit and health until she learns that her steer is scheduled to be slaughtered.
