Gauchos Herding Livestock Across River

Chuck Zimmerman

Gauchos herding cattleAfter a dusty day on the trail during our IFAJ Congress livestock farm tour in Argentina’s Entre Ríos province we got a welcome change of pace with a boat trip on the Paraná River. Our boats all took us to where we got a front row seat as gauchos herded horses and cattle across the river. It turned into a beautiful afternoon with the sun shining. As we got to the crossing we could hear the gauchos in the distance through the brush as they brought the herds to the river. Then they kept them going and swam on their horses along with the livestock to the other side where they turned back around and did it again. It was fascinating to watch.
