Judging by the huge turnout, our ranchers and their cattle are a big concern for everyone. Ranchers and non-ranchers turned out Friday for the meeting addressing concerns of the large amount of missing cattle. Several government agencies were represented. Although they work hard to prevent cattle theft, we, as residents can help just by being observant and reporting anything that doesn't belong or fit into normal activity. A huge thank you to Tom Blessinger for taking the "bull by the horns" and putting this all together. As always, the ladies of Ola were perfect hostesses by providing refreshments.
