About the Herd

FT Herd logo The Fort Worth Herd was created as part of the city's sesquicentennial celebration. A herd of 15 Texas Longhorns, each steer representing one decade from Fort Worth's colorful past, and a diverse team of drovers clad in authentic 19th century clothing were acquired to create the Fort Worth Herd.

On June 12, 1999, in front of 15,000 spectators, the Fort Worth Herd made its first cattle drive to the Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District.
