The Fort Worth Herd
Managed by the Fort Worth Convention & Visitors Bureau, the Fort Worth Herd presents Stockyard visitors with a glimpse into the past and Fort Worth’s rich western heritage with the world’s only twice daily cattle drive. In preserving its heritage as Cowtown, the City of Fort Worth has its own herd of 15 Texas Longhorns – one for each decade of Fort Worth’s 150-year history.

Chris Cox of RFD-TV’s Chris Cox Horsemanship Show has graciously allowed us to use a recent episode featuring the Fort Worth Herd. Taped in the Historic Fort Worth Stockyards, the show highlights The Fort Worth Herd, its drovers and the world’s only twice daily cattle drive (which occurs on East Exchange Avenue at 11:30 am and 4:00pm every day). Chris even shares some of his horse knowledge with The Herd drovers.
