Fight for the Drive

The Old West is revitalized each year when the historic cattle drive known as the Upper Green River Drift makes its way through western Wyoming. Cowboys mounted horseback drive thousands of head of cattle along the path, just as they have done for 124 years.

Right now, outside forces are threatening this longstanding western tradition. Radical environmentalist groups are working to issue a devastating blow to the grazing practices that these ranches have efficiently implemented for years.

Fortunately, ranchers have already made headway in the case.

An early victory came as a federal judge rejected the preliminary injunction filed by these activist groups that would have immediately hindered the grazing ability of cattle from these ranches.

To see what Mountain States Legal Foundation is doing to help ranchers in this case try and preserve the western way of life, read the story below.
