The trail boss was the man in charge of either a herd of cattle or horses and the men herding or driving them.  Depending on the size of the herd and if it belonged to one person or a couple of large ranches the trail boss could be the owner of the ranch for smaller drives or a hired professional trail boss for large herds owned by wealthy ranchers. Cattle drives began as early as the 1830’s but the boom years were 1866 to 1886, during which 20 million cattle were herded mainly from Texas to the railheads in Kansas for shipment to the Chicago stockyards and eastward. The trail boss had to choose the best places to stop and know the ins and outs of the trail terrain, where the waterholes were along with maintaining the health of his wranglers and the health and weight of the cattle he was driving so that top dollar could be obtained at the railhead.  The cattle were driven were about 15 miles daily so the cattle could graze and rest during midday and at night. A cattle drive could take as long as two months or more depending on where the ranch was located. Classic western movie with trail boss movie is the 1958 film “Cowboy” starring Glenn Ford as the trail boss and Jack Lemmon the tenderfoot who joins the drive. The TV show “Rawhide” (1959-1965) starred Eric Fleming as Gil Favor, the trail boss and Clint Eastwood as Rowdy Yates one of the cowboys.
