Storyline

The drive is stopped by Brock Stevens, whose father is a power in the meat-packing industry, and whose ownership of the railroad spur line enables him to deal ruthlessly with the local ranchers. Rex and the other ranchers are elated when Brock agrees to pay fair-market price for the cattle until they learn the exorbitant loading fees he charges will eat up their profits.

Rex starts to Tulsa to borrow the needed money, after ending a move by Hank, the lone dissenter among the ranchers and actually in league with the Stevens crowd.

Scalaway meat packer tries to rip off Rex and the boys
27 January 2000 | by See all my reviews

Western musical in which Rex is forced into dealing with an unscrupulous cattleman. When Rex seeks an alternative outlet for his beef, the rascally cowman infiltrates Rex's outfit in order to sabotage his organization. Finally Rex is forced to market his steers in another area which means he will have to cross 2 days of waterless wasteland. Plenty of action, singing, and comedy in this nicely done western.
