the buzz





The Sunflower State is dead center in the very middle of the country, halfway between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Kansas is nearly box-shaped, except for a tiny nibble taken out of its northeast corner, where the Missouri River briefly snakes into the state. It’s situated directly above Oklahoma, and shares a border with Nebraska to the north. Once, bison roamed the prairie of Kansas by the millions. Today Kansas prairie country is home to some 6,000 bison, making a slow recovery in various refuges and ranches. These days most of Kansas is farm- and ranchland, producing wheat, cattle, and of course sunflowers. During the early 1880s, Dodge City, the “Queen of the Cow Towns,” was the end of the line for Texas longhorn cattle driven north along the Chisholm and Western Trails. From Dodge City, the cattle were loaded onto cattle cars and taken by railroad to the east. When refrigerated railroad cars were invented, all of this would change. Then, cattle would be butchered in cities like Kansas City, and only the meat would be shipped east.
