How do you think the growth of the Cattle Kingdom affected the Plain Indians?
Answer - Sometimes, there were conflicts on the range. Since water was scarce, ranchers battled over the rights to water holes and streams. When sheepherders moved onto the Plains, ranchers tried to drive them out. The ranchers complained that sheep nibbled the grass so low that cattle could not eat.
am i correct??????
That's a good answer -- except you haven't answered the question. It asks how the growth of the Cattle Kingdom affected the Plains Indians.
In the 1870s, farmers began moving onto the range. They fenced their fields with barbed wire/ Sharp barbs kept cattle and sheep from pushing over fences and trampling plowed fields. As more farmers bought land and strung barbed wire, the open range began to disapper.
Where are the Indians??
