Voice of the Cattle Industry Since 1913

Lead the way with OCA

Serving Generations for Generations

The Oregon Cattlemen’s Association originated in Baker County in 1913 when twelve individuals sought to advance the economic, political, and social interests of the Oregon Cattle Industry. That mission continues today with members from every corner of the state and our natural resource partners. Together, we proactively strive to inform and educate today’s consumer about the cattle industry. Additionally, we engage in conversations with elected officials in Oregon’s Capitol and Washington D.C. regarding issues impacting Oregon Cattlemen.

Is Membership for Me?

“OCA” represents a wide-range of people and businesses involved in Oregon’s cattle industry. Do you own cattle? Do you work on a ranch? Do you sell products to ranchers? Are you involved in land stewardship? Are you involved in large animal health and care? Are you a supporter of the industry? Are you involved in agricultural education?

If you have answered yes to any of these questions, there is a place for you at OCA and we invite you to membership. Help us lead the way for Oregon’s cattle industry!
