Pendleton Cattle Barons has joined forces with two of the agriculture industry’s strongest partners and proponents. Lucas Oil and Protect the Harvest have become the title sponsor of Pendleton Cattle Barons Weekend. The Weekend honors Pendleton’s ranching heritage and creates scholarships for area students taking agricultural majors in college or university courses.
“Both Lucas Oil and Protect the Harvest fall in line with what Cattle Barons Weekend stands for”, says organizer Marty Campbell. “As an agriculturist, Mr. Lucas understands our mission of promoting the future of our industry and its heritage. Protect the Harvest has grown from his passion to inform the public about agriculture, protect the future of the industry and respond intelligently to opponents of agriculture.”
“Protect The Harvest exists to defend our way of life, preserve our food freedom, and stand up for America’s farmers, hunters and animal owners.” Forrest Lucas says.
Pendleton Cattle Barons Weekend is filled with activities that honor and preserve the ranching heritage of Northeast Oregon. Events include the Western Select Gelding Sale, North American Stock Saddle Bronc Championship, Ranch Rodeo, Buckeroo Barbeque Challenge, and a Western Trade Show.
All proceeds from the Weekend’s events create scholarships for area students majoring in agriculture.
