Harry Was a Cow Caller examines small farming in Southwestern Ontario. Harry, a recurring subject in this series, is a cow caller: the past tense of the title alludes to the rapid disappearance of his way of life and livelihood, the increasingly obsolete skills, and traditions he embodies. Murzin's subjects predict that cattle farming won’t exist in Southwestern Ontario fifty years from now, as the family farm continues to be replaced by cash-crop corporate conglomerates.
