A local rancher - founder of Family Ranchers Beef Cooperative, headquartered in Oregon died of pancreatic cancer Tuesday, he was 74. Doc Hatfield began as a veterinarian in Montana, according to the Statesman Journal. He brought several cattle breeds to the U.S. in the 1960's and was a pioneer in breeding livestock; that was the beginning of the cooperative. He worked towards a leaner, healthier product and advocating such practices as high-intensity, short duration grazing that allows pastures to recover quicker. Hatfield was a resident of Sisters and is survived by this wife and two children.
