Keith’s Fall Drive

This is our yearly Cattle Drive, which is about 25 miles long.

Cattle must be moved from place to place in Wyoming to provide enough feed for the livestock without harming the range by overgrazing.

We trail about 200-350 cows every year back and forth between home and the place we lease. We start early in the morning and get done late in the afternoon.

Moving cattle from one place to another is often done horseback or with vehicles and ATVs. It is often more efficient and economical to move cattle in one big group than it would be to hire trucks to haul the large herds of cattle from place to place.

Its become a fun family time! We trail in the spring and then again in the fall and have been taking the trip for 6 or 7 years. I think it feels shorter every time we go!
