Storyboard Text

  • Cattle Drives were used by ranchers to transport their cattle to the north. Cattle drives were quite prominent in West Texas
  • Cattle was easiest to transport in the open range, when there was no barbed wire blocking their path
  • However, when the range was closed off by the barbed wire fences and wind mills, it made cattle drives difficult, resulting in fence cutting
  • The main dangers in a cattle drive were crossing rivers and stampedes.
  • In West Texas, there were cities called cowtowns where cowboys could stop by and take a rest, to wait for their train
  • At the end of the whole trip, we get our train. Railroads make it easier to transport cattle to the north. With the railroads, we are able to earn more money for our cattle
