Where are all the cowboys?

Did you know Canada.. Alberta is home to most of Canada's Cowboys. Calgary is the centre of the Canadian cattle industry. Cattle actually outnumber people in Alberta!

The Calgary Stampede started in 1912 and still goes strong today. Running a 10 day event in July. It's known as the world's richest rodeo offering more than $2 million in prizes.
