The cattle will be rounded up starting Sept. 3 and then be
driven north along the historic Cox Cattle Trial.
The cattle will pass through
Kingman and Ellinwood en route to Ellsworth, where the drive is
scheduled to end Sept. 19.
Along the route, there will be two chuck wagons, a trail boss
and horses. People with experience driving cattle will help out
inexperienced greenhorns who can ride along for $2,500.
