OKLAHOMA CITY — The Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Association (OCA) has planned the 2021 OCA Fall Gatherings. There are twelve locations scattered around the state with the idea that everyone should have a Fall Gathering within a comfortable drive distance. Fall Gatherings begin at 6:30 p.m. with a free beef supper followed by beef cattle industry updates.
“I always enjoy the OCA Fall Gatherings! The food, the fellowship and the family friendly atmosphere are among my favorite aspects,” said Byron Yeomen, OCA President. “Fall Gatherings provide a time for cattlemen to come together for an evening meal and industry update without having to drive too far or spend the whole day away from the ranch.”
The dates and locations are:
· Tuesday, Oct. 12, A Bar Ranch, Claremore, OK
· Monday, Nov. 1, LeFlore County Livestock Auction, Wister, OK
· Tuesday, Nov 2, Stuart Ranch, Waurika, OK
· Thursday, Nov. 4, Wes Watkins Agriculture Research & Extension Center, Lane, OK
· Monday, Nov. 8, Spur Ranch, Vinita, OK
· Monday, Nov. 8, McClain County Farm & Home Building, Purcell, OK

There are several great prizes up for grabs included a pair of OCA Ranch Rodeo tickets given away to a lucky attendee at each of the 12 OCA Fall Gatherings. Additionally, anyone that joins the OCA or recruits a new OCA member between Oct. 12 and Dec. 1 will be entered into drawings for a chance to win one of five different prizes.
Attendees who bring empty Ralgro or Revelor implant cartridges will get a special take home gift. Merck Animal Health will pay the OCA $.25 per emptry cartridge collected. Those funds will be used to fund scholarships.
