Cattle Donations

Participants in the Leedey Cattle Round Up.

Farmers and ranchers round the state began donating cattle to feed the children at the Children’s Home and Boys Ranch Town in the 1960s. In some churches, like First Baptist Church, Leedey, it became a well-supported community affair, often with several family members joining in to give. Leedey farmers and ranchers have continued with their annual cattle round-up for more than 40 years.
