This herd of longhorns are driven down the street in the Stockyards in Fort Worth once a day.
The railroad finally arrived in Fort Worth in 1876 and the city became a major shipping point for livestock. This prompted plans in 1887 for the construction of the Union Stockyards about two and one half miles north of the Tarrant County Courthouse. It went into full operation about 1889.
The Stockyards are now a major tourist attraction with entertainment, hotels, food and shopping.
