OKLAHOMA CITY — Craig/Ottawa Cattlemen’s Associations won a Priefert SO4 Chute and Carriage during the recent Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Association (OCA) 70th Annual Convention and Trade Show.
“Each year the unified county cattlemen’s associations compete to win the use of a Priefert SO4 Chute,” said Tiffani Pruitt, OCA Director of Operations. The OCA has a unified county program in place which means all members belonging to the county cattlemen’s association also belong to the OCA.”
A Priefert SO4 chute with carriage is awarded to the unified county that has the most growth from July 1, 2021, to June 30, 2022. Craig/Ottawa Cattlemen’s Associations recruited 19 new members over the year and this is their second time to win a chute.
“Congratulations to Craig/Ottawa Cattlemen,” Pruitt said. “We want to extend a special thank you to Priefert Ranch and Rodeo Equipment for generously sponsoring this award and supporting the OCA membership program. The OCA is a member run and driven organization. Without membership growth, young member recruitment and current members who are devoted to spurring us on, the OCA would perish.”
OCA Convention is an annual event where several hundred cattle ranching families from around the state come together to create policy, listen to informative speakers, celebrate industry accomplishments, and recognize individuals and groups, like the Craig/Ottawa Cattlemen, who contribute to the success of the Oklahoma Beef Industry.
The OCA is the trusted voice of the Oklahoma Cattle Industry. OCA is the only voice that speaks solely for the cattlemen of Oklahoma and represents beef producers in all 77 counties across the state. The OCA officers, board of directors and membership encourages you to join us in our advocacy efforts to ensure less government intervention, lower taxes and a better bottom line.
