The Saline County Sheriff's Department had two sheriff's available to block all roads that the drive crossed including the intersection of U.S. Highway 65 and Linn Street in Malta Bend. (Rachel Harper/Democrat-News)

The cattle put on a must-see show as the cross the intersection of U.S. Highway 65 for the second time in three days. (Rachel Harper/Democrat-News)

Here is an idea of how many riders participated in the drive as the stretch down Linn Street farther than the eye can see. There were five riders to each head of cattle. (Rachel Harper/Democrat-News)

Another view of the many riders that rode for a good cause. (Rachel Harper/Democrat-News)

The cattle drove over the railroad crossing with no problem. (Rachel Harper/Democrat-News)

Riders drove the cattle right through the heart of Malta Bend down Linn Street past the school, through U.S. Highway 65 intersection and across the Railroad tracks to the west of Central Missouri AgriService. The cattle and riders have just about a half a mile to go to their destination after traveling six miles. (Rachel Harper/Democrat-News)

The cattle and riders started kicking up dust as the picked up the pace on the last stretch before a break for lunch. (Rachel Harper/Democrat-News)

Riders seem to pick up the pace as they get ready to "break ranks" for lunch. Note the beautiful background to the photo which Mid-Missouri Energy (MME) provides. Some may think of "old horsepower and new horsepower." The cattle drive shows the past where horses were the most important implement to a rancher for transportation. MME now provides ethanol to fuel modern-day transportation. (Marcia Gorrell/Democrat-News)
