Montana Great Centennial Cattle Drive

The cattle drive is very cool to see, and better yet, by the Billings Visitor Center for lots of traveler's info.

In 1989, your road trip might have been temporarily blocked while waiting for 2,800 cattle to cross a road between Roundup and Billings. It was part of a 6-day, 50 mile reenactment of a typical cattle drive to the stockyards. The sculpture, a bronze rendering by Lyle E. Johnson and Dale E. Wood of a cowboy herding two longhorns, celebrates the ambitious 100th anniversary event.
