Can Anyone Tell Me About this Fabric??

My kids went back to school this week and I have had very little time to sew. I have just barely begun a dress for my friend's baby and I hope to share it soon. So today, I am hoping you can help me with some information about these fabrics. 
 I got them several years ago and here's what I know:
They are old- maybe from the 1940s? 
The first one is Borden fabric with Elsie the Cow and her family. I have an uncle who worked for Borden, so this one especially interested me.
These are in perfect, uncut, unused condition.
I have about 8 yards of the Borden fabric and 3 yards of the other.
When I have seen fabric like this on ebay, it sells for quite a bit. I am thinking of selling all but a few yards of the Borden fabric. Do you know anything about these fabrics? I looked for them online and couldn't find much. I found a couple of tablecloths made from the Borden fabric, but no one had a big piece unused.

How fun! They would make darling sundresses. I love the Elsie fabric.
