Caroline Caldwell


Originally from a farming community in central Ohio, Caroline graduated from Bates College in Maine with a degree in environmental studies. During her collegiate years she was a rower and swimmer and spent summers working with horses and livestock on the east coast and Colorado. After graduation she received a Thomas J. Watson Fellowship to live and work abroad for a year on large-scale cattle and sheep properties in remote corners of the world. She lived in Finland, New Zealand, the Falkland Islands and Australia and worked in some pretty spectacular but far-removed places. After returning to the states she continued to work in ranching and in the Spring of 2018 she joined Oxbow Cattle Company. Caroline is excited for the future of Oxbow and is happy to call the Missoula community home.
