Oklahoma National Stockyards
Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
The National Livestock Companies are pleased to announce their support, once again, for the All American Beef Battalion.
The calf to be auctioned is again being donated by 3C Cattle Feeders and the Clyde Runyan family of Mill Creek, Oklahoma. A very special thanks go out to Clyde and Penny, along with their sons, who have donated the calf for 6 years. Clyde was with the 101st Airborne in Vietnam and considers this a privilege to be able to give back to the troops.
This is the 8th year for the National Livestock companies to be involved in supporting the All American Beef Battalion. With the 2017 auction bringing in more than $60,000, contributors to this event have raised over $379,000 from the annual auction of a donated calf.
"Many organizations and individuals have joined together for this worthy cause each year. The efforts of many have made this successful and we thank all our partners and friends for their help. Through these auctions, approximately 37,900 troops have been fed an American ribeye steak upon their return home from deployment" stated Robert York, CEO of National Livestock Credit Corporation.
Anyone may support this effort by calling 800?310?0220 and speaking with Debbie Wedel. If you are unable to attend but would still like to support the cause, you can call Debbie for your proxy bid or you may also visit the All American Beef Battalion web site (www.steaksfortroops.com) and make your donation by PayPal. National Livestock will invoice bidders and contributors and will forward all funds to the All American Beef Battalion. All checks should be made payable to the All American Beef Battalion.
