Cowlamity Kate Cudster is the tomboyishly beautiful rancher and operator of the highly profitable Golden Cud Mine. She's as hard-working and hard-riding as any steer and has enough skill to put Cowlorado to shame. She returns Dakota's romantic feelings; she gave him his signature hat and nearly tied the knot in Wedding Bull Blues. Her name is a play on the famous Wild West heroine, Calamity Jane. And she is also known as courageous, optimistic, wise, level-headed, aspiring, mature, instructive, thoughtful, polite, kind-hearted, assertive, trustworthy, encouraging, caring, understanding, dependable, selfless, tidy, extroverted and responsible.

However, everytime she offers her home made rhubarb pie, every one reluctantly refuses. This may indicate she's a terrible cook.
