W. C. Greene registered the OR brand in 1884. He then established the Greene Cattle Company in 1901, in southeast Arizona's San Pedro Valley, and the Cananea Cattle Company, which was across the border in Sonora, Mexico. The three American divisions of the OR—the Hereford, San Rafael, and San Pedro—employed more than forty cowhands. A single roundup attracted approximately 125 riders from five different outfits. Smith estimated that perhaps as many as ninety percent of the Arizona cowhands were Texans, judging from their mustaches and their distinctive method of handling horses. Smith was so enthusiastic about the caliber of cowhand he encountered there that he was inspired to stage a mock holdup inside the company store.
