Gene and his buddies discover that the ranch they bought is really a dairy farm. And worse, it's subject to intimidation from a protection racket that prevents dairy products from safely reaching the market.
When Belnap finds his herd infected with hoof and mouth disease, he tries to ship them immediately. But Gene finds an infected cow and quarantines all the herds. To get permission to ship, Belnap changes the brand on one of his infected cows to the Wheeler brand. Gene knows the Wheeler herd is OK and sets out to find the infected herd. Written by

I'm warnin' you. If you take any cattle across this line, I'm going to blast you with this smokestick - and it ain't loaded with beans!

Home On The Prarie casts Gene Autry as a cattle inspector checking various herds for hoof and mouth disease and other various and sundry ailments that affect the bovine. But a dead calf with hoof and mouth disease is found on the spread of his good friend George Cleveland and his daughter June Storey. Gene's romantic plans with Storey may get a real crimp in it if he has to have their herd destroyed.
But it's not Cleveland's herd that's the problem. That calf is planted there by the real villain who wants to get his cattle to market before they're discovered to be diseased.
Gene and Smiley Burnette take on a third and fourth partner in this one. Medicine show man Earle Hodgins and his elephant who come in mighty handy in the pinch. Think of Gunga Din as you reflect on my last remark.
Good paced Gene Autry western, even some grownups might like it.
