In 1920, brothers-in-law Joseph Casner Woody (1880-1950) and Jefferson Davis Kutch, Jr. (1890-1990) were both active in the Fort Worth Stock Yards Company, a central buying location for regional cattle and sheep ranchers and hog farmers. They incorporated the Woody-Kutch Livestock Commission Company of North Fort Worth in 1923, with Woody as president and Kutch as vice president. Their office in the Livestock Exchange Building was a clearinghouse to process receipts of sales. For all its activity and volume of business, the building which housed 48 livestock commission companies was known as the "Wall Street of the West." After Woody's death, Kutch and J.D. Farmer started Farmer-Kutch Livestock Commission Company, which operated until 1981.
