The Texas longhorn and the American Cowboy are two of the most enduring symbols of the old west, they are a big reason why Fort Worth earned the nickname "Cowtown". Today, the romance & mystique of the cattle drive era is alive through the Fort Worth Herd, the world's only twice daily cattle drive.
Equipped with a diverse group of cowboys, authentic clothing, period tack, and 22 majestic Texas longhorns, the Fort Worth Herd makes its way down East Exchange Avenue twice daily in the Historic Fort Worth Stockyards for over 700,000 visitors each year.
In addition to being a driving force in tourism, the Fort Worth Herd has equal value as an educational tool for the over 16,700 school children who learn about history, economics, and finance rooted in Fort Worth's cattle industry through the Fort Worth Herd education program.
