Cattle drive moved to actual trail
The 2015 Commemorative Great Western Cattle Drive location has been moved! Due to ever-increasing complexities, the longhorn cattle drive will no longer traverse Goodland’s Main Street but will, instead, occur directly on the documented trail itself. Great Western Cattle Trail’s Wallace Branch passed near the former Bray Post Office. This post office was specifically mentioned as a trail way point and the location will afford attendees a fully authentic, visual experience of an even larger herd of longhorn cattle being driven on the open prairie on the actual trail route.
Bring your cameras and be ready to step back into the cattle drive days with this living history exhibition. Interaction with the cowboys (real working cowboys) will be afforded.
Arrive July 4, 4 p.m. Mountain Time. Plan 25 minutes travel time from Goodland. Go 5 miles east of Goodland on Highway 24, then 12 miles north on gravel Road 25. Follow the signs. All polite public is invited to attend this free event on a historically located working ranch.by
