A cattle trail that leads goes from Texas, across Oklahoma to Kansas
The Chisholm Trail was a trail that was used to drive cattle overland from ranches in Texas to Kansas rail heads during the late 19th century. The trail is named for Jesse… Chisholm, who had built several trading posts in what is now western Oklahoma.
The Chisholm Trail ended in Abilene, Kansas. It had numerous points of origin dependent on drovers and herds.
The Chisholm trail is located in the city of Duncan Oklahoma. The Chisholm trail offered a major route out of Texas for the livestock from 1867 to 1884.
was a long trail on Texas used for cattle driving and herding
Cows, cowboys, wranglers and Native Americans all used the trail between Texas and Abilene beginning in 1867 as a cattle trail. The route is named for Jesse Chisholm who used …existing Indian routes which generally follow the Current US Highway 81 across Oklahoma from the Red River to Kansas. Chisholm established a series of trading post in Oklahoma which supplied the route although he never used the trail himself to drive cattle to market.
Cowboys took cattle up to Kansas from Texas because they could get a better price for their cattle. They used the Chisolm Trail to avoid passing through areas where it was… illegal or dangerous to bring Texas Longhorns, who were known to carry ticks harmful to other cattle breeds.
Because that's where they needed to sell their cattle.
b. They traveled along the trail in search of trading opportunities.
THE CHISHOLM TRAIL started in Yoakum, tx.,by land donated by the May family to the city and then to the stockyards, or holding pens (areas). This was started in the 1850's.
very busy . they have many things to accomplish on a daily basis
The Chisholm Trail helped the cowboy industry because it stretched from Texas to Kansas which made it possible to herd cattle from 1 place to another. I hoped that answered yo…ur question! ( wow that sounds like a total run on sentence but it isn't )
They were trails that led from south Texas all the way through Kansas and Dodge City.
