Copper CowBelles keep ringing their bells for beef
Don’t be fooled by the adorable name, the Copper CowBelles are a powerful group of Grant County women busy with the task of convincing the community to love beef as much as they do.
They have ads promoting beef on the radio, give out certificates for free beef, have three different Copper CowBelle signs welcoming visitors to Grant County, have adopted the median on U.S. 180 across from Western Bank, and maintain a presence each year at the Grant County Fair and this past year, at the Tamal Fiesta.
And although this extremely active organization, made up of 30 Grant County women, turned 40 last year, its members say that it has largely stayed the same throughout the years because of an unfaltering belief in its strong values — beef promotion and the protection of western ranching heritage.
