Ranching in Texas
Ranching is part of the history and romance of the American West. Its roots go back to the Spanish vaquero and the eastern herdsmen. Cattle ranching has been a major Texas industry for nearly three centuries. Many ranches in South Texas predate the American Revolution. Ranching as such dates from the 1730s, when herds were loosed along the San Antonio River to feed missionaries, soldiers, and civilians in the San Antonio and Goliad areas.
