    Notes 
    • The invention of barbed wire by the American Joseph Farwell Glidden in 1874 had a major influence on the development of the Central and Western United States. The cattle industry in the West had grown up on the great expanses of open range. This was beneficial in some ways because it let the cattle seek their own forage. It had disadvantages, however. Cattle from different owners would get mixed together and have to be separated before being driven to market. The open range was also an invitation to thieves to steal cattle.
