The Cattlemen’s Congress will have a second edition in 2022 said Jarold Callahan, president of Express Ranches and a member of the Cattlemen’s Congress board of directors.
Ron Hays Beef Buzzes With Jarold Callahan
The event, held in early January at the Oklahoma State Fairground to replace the National Western Stock Show in Denver which was cancelled due to Covid-19, turned out some impressive numbers.
The show had a $40 to $50 million positive economic impact for Oklahoma City, Callahan said.
Perhaps more importantly the cattle industry had the opportunity to display their genetics, he added.
A quick review of the numbers showed 22 sales held in conjunction with the event, all significantly higher than previous years, Callahan said, returning $10.3 million to the purebred industry.
There were 2,793 exhibitors from 41 states and 3 Canadian provinces participated in the inaugural event.
The results were so impressive the Oklahoma Senate unanimously passed a resolution this week supporting the Cattlemen’s Congress as a “perpetual” event.
The Oklahoma House is expected to pass a similar resolution next week.
The Cattlemen’s Congress board met about three weeks ago following strong positive feedback and response from the Governor’s office, the exhibitors, city and state fair officials and Callahan said “Yes, we will do it again.”
The schedule will be similar to this year with a few extras planned, he noted.
It’s pretty exciting to have 10 months to get ready instead of a few weeks, Callahan said.
We’re planning a few more cattle functions, maybe some special feeder calf sales, perhaps a commercial bred heifer sale, he said.
Callahan said they want to build on what they learned from the first show and encourage more participation from the commercial cattle industry.
The National Western Stock Show in Denver has vowed to hold their event next year so the question now is will they be able to pull the exhibitors away from Oklahoma.
The Oklahoma Legislature, along with the Oklahoma cattle industry is betting on another strong Cattlemen’s Congress in January 2022.
