    The term was "SOD BUSTER" and meant "farmer".  In the urban dictionary of today, "sidebuster" means "busybody".

    I don't have the answer but I know the term is sidebuster. On the Rifleman TV show Lucas was  always referred  to as a sidebuster. He didn't have to do anything and it wasn't a referral to his being a rancher. Someone would look at him without knowing anything about him and call him a sidebuster. I don't know what that means or why they would choose that description of him.

    Do you not mean sod buster=Farmer
