Additional Details:
The chief spectacular feature of cattle ranching in the West is the "round up," when the cowboys assemble all the cattle belonging to the ranchman by whom they are employed, in order for the selection to be made of the animals to be shipped to market. During these "'round ups," the cowmen are in the saddle about twenty hours a day for days at a time.
