In The 1800’s The Population Of Florida Was 34 Thousand People When The Pioneer “Cow Hunters” Trekked Into Florida And Gave Birth To The Cattle Industry.  By 2014, The Population In Florida Expanded To 19 Million; 2016 – 20 Million People.  Florida Is The 7th Fastest Growing State In The U.s. Surpassing New York.
