  • The cattle kingdom is an open space for cattle to roam. During the 1800's the cattle ranches that arose on the open range from Texas to Canada formed the cattle kingdom. South Texas, The King Ranch, was one of the most important cattle operations in the state.
  • Longhorns became more valuable as cattle ranching grew in the late 1850's. When the civil war broke out, the demand for Texas beef increased rapidly. The confederate army needed to feed their troops. However, as the war dragged on,Texans found it difficult to move cattle to the front, because the union army blocked the trade from confederate states.
  • Texans used cattle drives to transport cattle from one place to another, and make money. Tejano Ranchers would herd groups together south of the Rio grande to supply beef for the Spanish military.
