Season 3 Episode 7Piney Woods Cattle

In Covington County, some beef producing families have continued to raise a pioneer breed of cattle descended from those brought by the Spanish during the colonial period. JOURNEY PROUD visits these cattlemen to learn why they raise these herds and how the longleaf pine ecosystem in this part of Alabama helped keep alive an older practice of free range grazing.

Cattle grazed among the longleaf pines of the Conecuh National Forest until 2004.
