  •  Railroads
  • New equipment like threshers help speed up the process of harvesting crops, planting seeds and many more. Steel plows, made by John Deere in 1845, helped many farmers break through the hard soil to get to the rich soil. Many farmers back then had to use windmills ,which were first used by ranchers, to pump water water from aquifers to water there crop. Thinking about it now if they didn't have there resources life would have been a lot harder.
  •  Oil
  • Spanish created the new term, cattle ranchos, or ranches.The Spanish government forced farmers to put brands on their cattle. Cattle ranching was soon to be the most important industry. Spanish cattle bred with American cattle, this breed was called the Texas Longhorn, and these Longhorns changed the industry forever.
