Cattle on a Thousand Hills presents a history of cattle in Arkansas from the period of European exploration and settlement to the present day, when some of the finest beef herds in the country are found in the state. Dr. Brown focuses on the ranchers' and farmers' ways of life, explores the development of the various breeds, and describes how technological advances and the evolution of cattle marketing affected beef production in Arkansas.
Dr. Brown tells the story of the state's cattle industry in terms of the people who introduced new varieties of cattle to Arkansas, raised them, and led the associated supporting organizations. Included are chronicles of the Arkansas Cattlemen's Association and other organizations that have had significance in Arkansas's growing and dynamic cattle business: the Arkansas Cattlewomen's Association, the Farm Bureau, the Cooperative Extension Service, the Department of Animal Science at the University of Arkansas, and the Arkansas Veterinary Medical Association. Connell J. Brown's book is the definitive story of the people who built an industry currently worth half a billion dollars in annual sales.
