Promoting Tourism and Providing Great Cattle

Baker City Oregon was in the running for Best Small Town in America and was featured this summer on Travel Channel episode of Best of the Road. One of the stops for the tv crew was the scenic Thomas Angus Ranch. After the break we’ll learn how the tv crew had the opportunity to learn more about ranching, I’m KayDee Gilkey with Open Range after this.

The Travel Channel tv crew visited Thomas Angus Ranch where Rob and wife Lori had lunch and several ranching demonstrations. Local ranchers of all ages were also in attendance.?

Thomas: “We were able to host a lunch for the Rand McNally folks for the best Small town in America. We served a great Certified Angus Beef lunch. It was tremendous. It was a really neat way to showcase Baker Valley and the agriculture behind it.”??Thomas Angus Ranch is one of Oregon’s pioneer herds that has been raising great Angus seedstock for more than 60 years. This Thursday, October 18th, is their 40th annual fall production sale.

Thomas shares what sets their cattle apart from others.

Thomas: “We think it is certainly the genetics. We feel we have some of the very best genetics in the country. Besides that, it is the people behind the brand. It is our guarantee it is the way we assist customer in making decisions and marketing.”
