From the far reaches of Cassia County, back in the Oakley foothills, out where the deer and buffalo roam, you’ll find the new President of the Cassia County Farm Bureau. This is cow country and the new County President is a cattleman.
“Like so many in agriculture, I always wanted to play Cowboy,” said Oakley rancher Paul Marchant.
Paul Marchant grew up the cowboy way. He runs cattle, grows hay, and even coaches some basketball.
“It's been a circuitous route I’ve taken but I’ve always been involved in agriculture and ranching. I majored in Animal Science at BYU, minored in German and I use that a lot as you can imagine. But I've run ranches in Nevada and Southern Utah and here in Idaho. We’ve been here in this place, it's my Dad's place 25 years. My kids were all raised here,” said Marchant.
