Horseback Riders Marching Cattle Through Gary

October 29, 2011, 10:19 AM

GARY, SD - Horseback riders drove more than 500 cows and calves through the northeastern South Dakota town of Gary on Saturday in what is likely the last installment of a 32-year tradition.

On a select day each fall, rancher Dennis Kamrath and dozens of friends, relatives and volunteers drive his herd from pasture land about west of Gary to the Kamrath family farm in Canby, Minn.

The 15-mile trek has become an annual tradition for Gary, population 227, but the 59-year-old rancher says the expense of calving across the border in South Dakota is getting to be too much.

Gary Historical Association President Roger Baer says the drive has blossomed into a tourist draw since officials began promoting it a decade ago.
