Historic fires in eastern Oregon are dealing a devastating blow to Oregon cattle ranchers.  Besides the cattle that have died in recent wildfires, thousands of scorched acres mean a lot less food for the cattle that lived through the big fires.  Oregon Farm Bureau President Barry Bushue was a guest on 1110 KBND's Your Town today.  "I think the challenge that farmers have is: 1. If you're a rancher you are losing your winter forage, and if you don't have winter forage a place to go that creates a real problem. These people have spent generations in developing bloodlines and genetic stock to provide their livelihood for them.”  Bushue also says that government intervention has made it tough for ranchers.  Ranchers say in an attempt to save the Sage Grouse some of the public land has been mismanaged with too much grass and brush left on the rangelands.   And that extra fuel has made it more likely for wildfires to rage across the land.
