West Slope rancher takes helm of cattle association

A Western Slope rancher has been inducted as the new president of the Colorado Cattlemen’s Association.

T. Wright Dickinson of Maybell will serve a one-year term at the helm of the nonprofit trade association representing cattle producers in the state.

Dickinson continues to work on his family’s Vermillion Ranch in Northwest Colorado, an operation that extends into both Wyoming and Utah. He’s long served as a member of the CCA and follows his father’s footsteps as president of the group.

Dickinson also brings to his position as president of the CCA experience serving two terms as a Moffat County commissioner. In addition, he served as chairman of the executive committee of Club 20, a coalition of businesses, individuals and government entities in Western Colorado, as well as chairman of the Great Outdoors Colorado Board of Directors.

“I look forward to serving the members of the Colorado Cattlemen’s Association over the next year,” Dickinson said. “This organization is a true leader in Colorado and nationally on issues important to each and every beef producer, private landowner and federal land grazing permittee. I intend to carry on the tradition of this leadership and represent values and priorities of CCA’s membership.”
