Montana Cattle driveAdd to Lightbox Download
Andy Anderson, 4, sleeps while his parents try to get a cow into their trailer in their summer pastures in the Centennial Valley of Southwestern Montana in June 2012. The age of the open range is gone and the era of large cattle drives over. Today, very few ranches drive their cattle with horses, instead moving them by truck.
