Historic image of cattle drive.

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.
