Sherman and Wasco County cattlemen discuss merger

Let the chips fly and dining commence on March 6 at the Imperial River Company as Sherman and Wasco County Cattlemen’s Associations meet once again to discuss the merging of their two groups.

The two associations look to remedy a recent decline of county and state level involvement in their region by joining forces. In support of these counties’ goals, Oregon Cattlemen’s Association (OCA) President Curtis Martin and OCA Executive Director Kay Teisl will be in attendance.

Dinner sponsored by Pfizer Animal Health, CHS Nutrition, Morrow County Grain Growers (MCGG), and Dufur Hardware will begin at 6 p.m. with presentations from Pfizer and CHS included. At 7 p.m. local cattlemen will get back to business as they hold the second official meeting to combine the two county associations into one concentrated group.

Meeting topics will include merger logistics, officer elections and community involvement opportunities.

A Texas Hold Em’ tournament with a $20 buy in will directly follow the business meeting for all those daring enough to see where the cards land.

All stock growers, businesses, and individuals interested in supporting the efforts of the OCA and their respective county associations are welcome.

For more information on meeting specifics, contact OCA member and Private Lands Committee Chair Keith Nantz at or (541) 910-5179.

RSVP by Feb. 28 by calling Nantz or The Imperial River Company at (541) 395-2404. Nantz is also available for interview upon request.

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