Film Description:
"A picture of ranching in the foothills of southern Alberta that traces the cattle from range to railway corral. Exciting scenes of great herds being rounded up and moved to summer feeding grounds suggest the large scale on which this business is run, while pictures of protective spraying, concentrated feeding and shipping illustrate some of the less dramatic jobs involved in bringing Canadian beef to the world's tables."
