Cowboy Did You Know?
Prior to the
mid-19th century, most ranchers primarily raised cattle for their own
needs and to sell surplus meat and hides locally. There was also a limited
market for hides, horns, hooves, and tallow in assorted manufacturing
processes. While Texas contained vast herds of stray, free-ranging cattle
available for free to anyone who could round them up, prior to 1865, there
was little demand for beef.
