Oregon Cattlemen Celebrate 100 Years

Pete Springer/OPB

The Oregon Cattlemen’s Association is celebrating its 100-year anniversary in Baker City, the place where the organization was founded. Last year we profiled Baker City in an episode of the Our Town series. Today we taped a show from the Sundridge Best Western, where many of the cattlemen attending the event are staying. We spoke with longtime and first time cattlemen and women about the history and future of their industry. Today is the first day of the three-day celebration.

Here are some photos from today’s show.
