Grant-Kohrs Ranch began an educational outreach program in August 2002 to develop curriculum-based education products including lesson plans, traveling trunks, on-site educational activities, and an accredited annual teacher workshop. The materials developed are not only directed to state and park significance; but have national relevance as they teach about the open range cattle era in United States history.

Cattle drives rarely went more than ten or twelve miles a day. The cattle had to be given time to rest and graze. A drive from Texas to Montana could take up to five months. Kohrs bought two-year-old steers and brought them north to graze on the rich grasses of eastern Montana.
