Moorcroft, Wy – A cattle group that hopes to provide another voice for ranchers has gotten off the ground. Organizers say that they hope it will help with providing ranchers a future and to help with marketing issues. The new group is called Independent Cattlemen of Wyoming or I-Calf. Organizer Judy McCullough or Moorcroft says they had ranchers from across the state attend their opening meeting this week. She says many of the ranchers feel disenfranchised. McCullough says they hope to provide a voice for those people.
McCullough says a steering committee will guide the group in the near future. She says the turnout shows there is a need for the group. McCullough believes their interests will differ from other organizations in the state.
