In thi day of co-ops. and various types of combines, it is a source of satisfaction to Morrow county people to have an independent
creamery operating successfully and filling the demand for that type of service in the community. W. C. Cox. proprietor, has built
the business up from a small beginning to one of the outstanding enterprises of the county and MCC products are sought after by
outside distributors. The cream checks disbursed by the concern constitute a payroll of no mean proportions throughout the year to

One of the most active organizations of the community is the Mor
row County Wranglers club. Horse lovers to the last one, this group
of men, women and youngsters carry out an active program through
the year. Early each June there is the Hey Day, a sort of amateur
rodeo in which there are thrills and spills. Comes county fair and
rodeo time, the Wranglers are out in full strength to help in the
arena and to add color and numbers to the parade. At the last fair
and rodeo they served a cowboy breakfast to several hundred rodeo
visitors. They will serve breakfast Saturday morning to visitors
here attending the Oregon Wheat League Convention.
A Champion 4-H Club Steer ,

. v , -r ,
One of the features of 4-H club work is the basis of equality upon
which the girls and boys are recognized. If that were not the ease,
we would not see Reita Graves and her champion Shorthorn steer
pictured above. Reita won at the Morrow county fair and took her
prize animal to the Pacific International Exposition at Portland
where she lost the grand championship by a close score. This coun
ty has a history of Shorthorn production that dates back more than
a half century, when the Mountain Valley Shorthorn ranch, owned
by the late W. O. Minor produced animals that won top honors In
many of the larger expositions and state fairs throughout the nation.
