CattleWomen publish new cookbook with ranch history
November 7, 2018
A cookbook, “Favorite Recipes from the Snowy Range CattleWomen”, was published this week and will go on sale at the Craft Fair Saturday at the Platte Valley Community Center.
More than 300 favorite recipes submitted by members and friends of the organization were compiled by Leanne Correll and appear in the 130 page book, plus 26 pages of Upper North Platte River ranch and valley photos, stories and history compiled by local historian Dick Perue.
Those wishing to obtain a cookbook may do so at the Craft Fair or by contacting Leanne Correll at 307 920-1200 or [email protected].
Since 1958 the organization, originally called “Snowy Range CowBelles” has published five other cookbooks promoting the beef industry, local ranching and agriculture in general.
Other projects include: County and State Fair awards for young people raising and showing cattle and doing leather projects; sponsoring a day in the country for kids program; luncheons at bull sales; sponsoring Carbon County Rodeo Queen contests; presenting books on the history of beef cattle and beef industry to local libraries; selecting a “Ranch Woman of the Year” annually, and promoting agriculture through education.
The group currently has about 30 active members, and all ranch women who are interested are invited to join. Meetings are usually held every other month at SER Soil Conservation District office in Saratoga or other designated locations in the Valley.
