LAREDO Cow Town 2016

Cattle drives were a major economic activity in the American west, particularly between 1866 and 1886, when millions of cattle were herded from Texas to railheads in Kansas for shipments to stockyards in Chicago and all points east. The need for periodic rests by riders and animals, and the establishment of railheads led to the development of 'cow towns'
