National Day of the Cowboy

Cowboy on Horse, National Day or the Cowboy

Date When Celebrated : Fourth Saturday of the month

National Day of the Cowboy was created in 2005 to preserve the role and contributions cowboys and cowgirls made to the western heritage and history of our country. Every year on this day, the NDOC organization  gives recognition awards to individuals, organizations and projects that contribute to the preservation of both pioneer history, and the promotion of cowboy culture.

Shortly after the Civil War, cowboys and cowgirls began to appear in America's heartland and the wild west. They were largely ranchers and ranch hands, raising cattle, horses and other animals. Cowboys herded them across the plains to feed the animals, and ultimately to slaughterhouses to feed a growing American population.

It was a wild and often lawless time. In the absence of the rule of law, Cowboys developed their own code to live by, known as the "Cowboy Code of Conduct" or the "Cowboy Code of Ethics". They were simple and logical rules of behavior. The rules could readily apply at any time, even today.
