Round-up

The round up was the most important event on the ranch. The spring round up was usually the largest of the year. First riders gathered at a central point with each large ranch sending a team of riders. Because in the past there were no fences, once the cattle were rounded up, cowboys sorted them by owner for branding, earmarks, and medical attention. Smaller round ups were done in September to collect late calves.
