Cattlemen aboard ship? #general


JoAnne Lamm
 

My grandmother immigrated to America aboard the Lake Ontario which left
Liverpool for St John, New Brunswick on March 27, 1897.

The last page of the ship's manifest shows a list of first initials, last
names, and ages labeled "List of Cattlemen per Lake Ontario".

Does anyone know why this ship would have carry cattlemen as well as
immigrants?

Thank you for your time.
