Cattlemen gather in Baker City to celebrate a century


Baker City is welcoming the Oregon Cattlemen’s Association later this weekend when the organization celebrates a century of advocacy on behalf of ranchers across Oregon. 

The OCA was founded in Baker City in 1913. For the 100th celebration, the convention returns to its roots June 20-23 for activity-filled days.

The 2013 convention agenda features dignitary guest speakers — including Congressman Greg Walden — industry education opportunities, association business and committee meetings, and social events for registered attendees.

Many additional activities are open to the general public as well as to registered convention goers, including a parade at 5:30 p.m. Friday in downtown Baker City and a ranch rodeo at 11 a.m. Saturday at the fairgrounds rodeo arena. There will also be a trade show, Western art vendors from throughout the Northwest and much more, all taking place at the Baker County Fairgrounds and the adjacent Baker Armory. 

Day passes for public events are $10 a day or $20 for all three days and are also available online or at the event registration desk.

Other weekend events include:

Cow dog trials: 9 a.m. Friday

Demo of horse-powered equipment: 10 a.m. Friday

Rock  jack building contest: 11:30 a.m. Friday

Ranch Horsemanship by Alice Trindle: 1:30 p.m. Friday

Special Great Salt Lick and decorated boot auction: 4:30 p.m. at the Baker Armory
