  • Date(s): Wednesday, September 14th 2022
  • Time: 6 p.m.
  • Location: Niobrara County Library


Richard Kaan, a native of Lusk, WY, was raised on a ranch south of Lusk where the Texas Trail crossed the eastern Wyoming plains for several miles. Near what is called the “Flat Tops,” the remaining ruts from thousands of Longhorn cattle trailing to northern destinations were once visible where the cattle, cowboys and chuckwagons rounded the west edge of the sandrock outcrops on the Kaan Ranch. Rick will share over 300 years of the history of North American Longhorn Cattle.
