Aug. 3, 1971: This United Press International photo shows the grand opening of the Chicago-Joliet Livestock Marketing Center, better known as the Joliet Stockyards. The cattle in the photo were supposed to rip the red ribbon to open the stockyards, but ducked under it instead. It opened after Chicago's Union Stock Yards closed in 1971. The Joliet Stockyard closed in 1987.
