The purpose of the Hall of Fame is to preserve the history and highlight the impact of Western women living roughly from the mid-1800s to the present: the artists and writers, champions and competitive performers, entertainers, ranchers (stewards of land and livestock), trailblazers and pioneers. Today, there are over 200 extraordinary women who have been inducted into the National Cowgirl Hall of Fame since 1975.
Sally is one of nine inductees for 2011 who will be honored at the 36th Annual Induction Luncheon ceremony at the Will Rogers Memorial Center in Fort Worth, Texas.
Ranching for more than 50 years, Sally has developed a business of breeding Simmental and Simbrah and Sim Angus composite seedstock. She was one of the few women to graduate with an Animal Husbandry degree from Oklahoma State University, and was the first woman to be trained by the American Breeders Service to administer artificial insemination.
Congratulations Sally on this incredible recognition!
She and her ranch have been featured in numerous articles, including the CattleMax software website.
