Oregon cattlemen Assoc. turns 100 in 2013

November 8, 2012

By Oregon Cattlemen’s Association


Wolves, water rights and wildfires are hot topics in today’s beef producing industry. The issues were much the same in 1913 when a group of 51 cattle ranchers got together in Baker City and formed the Oregon Cattle & Horse Raisers Association, now called the Oregon Cattlemen’s Association.

Ranchers are, by nature, an independent lot, but they recognize the need to unify and work together when many hands or voices can get the job done better than one. Faced with the desire to effectively communicate with political officials, the general public and each other, the gathering of ranchers created one of Oregon’s oldest and most active industry associations.

The Oregon Cattlemen’s Association will tip a hat to the past 100 years and strengthen their ties for the future at their Mid-Summer Conference, June 20-22 , 2013 in Baker City.

“It is only fitting to return to the area of the state that created the association 100 years ago,” said Curtis Martin, President of the association. “We are planning a fun commemoration and hope to see cattle producers from across Oregon, with all sizes of operations there.” Martin added they are making the announcement early in the hope people will mark their calendars and plan to attend. The agenda will also include industry education opportunities, association business and committee meetings. “More than ever, cattle producers need to educate themselves and work together to find solutions to our biggest concerns.”

The Oregon Cattlemen’s Association (OCA) works to promote environmentally and socially sound industry practices, improve and strengthen the economics of the industry, and protect its industry communities and private property rights.
