Gil Favor: There's money in beef, but it doesn't come easy. There's a market for all the steers you can raise. But it's a thousand miles away. You get top prices only for top cattle. Pushin' the herd up the trail is only half the job. You've gotta get in there in good shape. It takes tough men workin' long hours for low wages, starin' trouble in the face at every bend in the trail. I'm one of 'em. Gil Favor, trail boss.
