In the winter of 2010, a crew of Montana cowboys embarked on a journey to start a ranch on the Russian steppes. Traveling by truck, airplane and cargo ship, the cowboys took horses, cattle and every piece of ranching equipment they would need to train local villagers in the cowboy trade. The venture was aimed to help the Russian Federation rebuild a beef cattle industry that was decimated during the Soviet Union.
