Actually Forest Tucker did not play the Sargent in this movie. He was the lieutenant and Edgar Buchanan played SGt. O'rourke. See more »
When the Indians raid the ranch at the start of the movie all of the cattle in the stockade are Herefords. Herefords were not established as livestock in the western US until the 1880's when Charles Goodnight was finally able to breed them in the Texas panhandle a few other ranchers in the western US had tried in the late 1870's but all of those small herds died off after a short time.

A band of renegade Utes, led by a sneaky, low down, forked tongue white man, burn, loot, and pillage across the southwest. A rugged settler and the Army go after the elusive skunk and his gang of dirty rats and meet in a blazing gun battle in the mountains. Above average western.
