96号农场 (Ninety-Six Ranch) 在1979年的最后一次放牧:1979107

为了让这些牛只能够往正确的方向走,牛仔骑马的位置必须比牛只要高,而且要带领牛只走下山。为了要把牛只赶出灌木丛,牛仔们必须要猛力敲打铝罐或装满石头的罐子,同时还得小心不能惊吓到牛群。

当这项工作进行到最后一步时,所有在夏天出生的小牛都会被烙上印记,有些牛会被卖掉。冬天的时候,剩下来的牛群则会被收容在附近的牧场里。到了春天,新生的小牛也会被烙上印记,牛仔会再把牛群带回山上享受青草,并逐渐长大。当秋天来临之时,牛仔又要再把牛群们赶回山下。


To get the herd going in the right direction, the buckaroos rode to a site above the cattle, and then headed toward them down the hill. To drive the cattle from a thicket, they banged on tin cans or shook cans full of stones, always being careful not to cause a stampede.

At the end of the round up, any calves born during the summer were branded, and some of the cattle were sold. The remaining herd was kept in nearby pastures during the winter. In the spring, the new calves would be branded and turned out with the rest of the cattle to grow fat on the summer grass in the mountains. When fall rolls around again, the buckaroos head out after them once again.
