Grady's in the Silo is based on a true story that took place in Yukon, Oklahoma in 1949. Grady is a cow that somehow manages to jump into a silo one day. As word spreads of Grady's plight, her owner, Bill, is inundated with suggestions for getting her out again. The crazy and impractical ideas he gets make for a funny tale, and it takes four days before someone actually comes up with a practical suggestion. Will it work, or is Grady condemned to living out her life in the silo?
