Checking In on the Beef Checkoff- Oklahoma Beef Council, OBI Partner to Beef Up the Blood Supply

Wed, 29 Aug 2018 12:08:34 CDT

Checking In on the Beef Checkoff- Oklahoma Beef Council, OBI Partner to Beef Up the Blood Supply Checking In on the Beef Checkoff is a new series the Radio Oklahoma Ag Network and the Oklahoma Farm Report is proud to offer in partnership with the Oklahoma Beef Council. Over the next several weeks, we invite you to join us as we highlight some of the efforts being undertaken by the Beef Checkoff to promote beef on behalf of producers. This week, Heather Buckmaster, executive director of the Oklahoma Beef Council, visits with us about the OBC’s upcoming blood drive, Beef Up the Blood Supply, in partnership with the Oklahoma Blood Institute. Listen to Buckmaster speak with Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays about this event, by clicking or tapping the LISTEN BAR below at the bottom of the page.



“On Friday, August 31st from 9:00 to 4:00, the Oklahoma Beef Council is going to be hosting its annual ‘Beef Up the Blood Supply’ blood drive with the Oklahoma Blood Institute,” she announced. “Donors who save lives on the Friday before Labor Day will enjoy a tailgate party at Oklahoma Blood Institute donor centers featuring all-beef hot dogs, of course.”


Buckmaster says the number of donations typically decline after Labor Day, which makes this event so critical in helping to sustain the state’s blood supply reserves. Buckmaster illustrated that fact remarking that every two seconds, someone is in need of blood.


“This has always been a wonderful opportunity for the Oklahoma Beef Council through the Beef Checkoff to step up and help beef up the blood supply,” Buckmaster added.
