Life living in the oil fields was and could never be considered good it was extremely dangerous because of all the violence that was happening such as fighting or stealing and people were living in some of the worst conditions due to this woman & children were not allowed to go there with their husbands/fathers.

The impact of oil on Texas and Texans is often analyzed in terms of corporate development, personal and corporate wealth, and the overall economy of the state and politics. Oil also dramatically affected the lives of those who owned the land from which oil was produced, or who were directly involved in oil exploration, extraction and processing.
RAILROADS & FARMING
railroads have seriously improved the way we transport our cattle
I know, i remember when we had to transport them on horeback
The Texas longhorn is a hybrid breed resulting from a random mixing of Spanish retinto (criollo) stock and English cattle that Anglo-American frontiersmen brought to Texas from southern and midwestern states in the 1820s and 1830s. " the many grassland is also a major reason for longhorn being so important
RAILROADS & FARMING
railroads really make transporting goods so muh easier
I couldn't agree more
Cattle drives were a major economic activity in the 19th century American West, particularly between 1856 and 1896 . In this period, 27 million cattle were driven from Texas to railheads in Arkansas, for shipment to stockyards in Louisiana and points east. The long distances covered, the need for periodic rests by riders and animals, and the establishment of railheads led to the development of "cow towns" across the frontier.
One of the primary effects of railroads on farmers is the decrease that railroads bring to farmers' transportation costs. Most obviously, it becomes cheaper to transport crops to the cities and ports. In addition, farmers can buy and transport industrial goods back to farms, including farm equipment and cattle.
. Trains offer an efficient way to move goods over long distances. Over a third of all freight transport happens via the railway system, but our railroads have not always been as expansive as they are today.
