I’m surprised they’d allow that if that road has much traffic.

If this surprises you go to cotton country during planting/harves, a wall of green and yellow is pretty hard to get around too!

Right down the road from our family stuff off White's Ranch Road, pretty common occurrence throughout the year. They still "swim" the cattle across the Intracoastal each year too.

There is only one set of pens post hurricane ike on 1985 so they just have to push them down the road between fences.

If you get up on the cows with your bumper they will part and let you through. No need to wait.

The cool thing to watch is when they swim them across the intercoastal down on whites ranch. They drive them off into the water and then work them with boats to keep them swimming straight across.

Of course you have to time all this with a gap in barge traffic also. Pretty interesting.

I've been down a lot of them in the three years that I lived and worked in Texas. Most of them looked a lot like what I'd describe a busy highway where I'm from, but it is interesting that they let them move their cattle down them like that.

I don't think I'd feel very good about getting my cattle out on the highway, but there again I guess my "cowboy" skills are lacking I don't have any help or reason to.
