- International Stock Food Company (Minneapolis, Minnesota)
- Date Created:
- Poster of a profile of the race horse, Dan Patch, featuring his 1906 world record for the fastest mile by a harness horse (1 minute and 55 seconds). International Stock Food Company was owned by Marion Savage, who bought race horse Dan Patch to help promote his business. Consequently, Dan Patch is featured on many International Stock Food Products. The horse and his owner had a close connection: Dan Patch died July 11, 1916; Savage died of a heart attack a few days later. Dan Patch became less significant as America embraced the automobile. Ironically, Savage started manufacturing the Dan Patch automobile in 1911.
