A Look at Florida’s Cattle Drive


On Tuesday, September 5th, 2017 at 7 PM the Rose History Auditorium will serve as the venue for a very special program that includes “The Great Florida Cattle Drive – Unbroken Circles,” a film by Elam Stoltzfus and Nic Stoltzfus. The event will be hosted by music producer and Florida native, J. Robert Houghtaling.

The program begins with “Insights into the Creation and Scoring of the Soundtrack” as J. Robert performs songs that he composed for the soundtrack of the film. The documentary tells the story of the Great Florida Cattle Drive of 2016, the history of Florida’s heritage cattle breed, how they almost became extinct and what is being done to preserve Florida’s cow culture for future generations. The running time of the film is 90 minutes.

Following the screening, there will be time for questions and answers about the making of this extraordinary movie, a not-to-be-missed opportunity.

The Marco Island Historical Society’s Rose History Auditorium is located at 180 South Heathwood Drive, Marco Island. Admission is free to Marco Island Historical Society members and $10 for non-members.
