OCA Winter Policy Conference Coming Up This Thursday
For the last several years- the Oklahoma Cattlemen's Association has held a Winter Policy Conference just ahead of the start of the Legislative Session at the Oklahoma State Capitol. It also allows the OCA members headed to the Cattle Industry Convention to huddle up and get their game plan finalized for the Houston meeting that is next week- February 1-3.

This year's OCA Winter Policy edition is this Thursday, January 27 at the Embassy Suites Oklahoma City Northwest
Located at 3233 NW Expressway, Oklahoma City, OK

It starts at 9 AM and there are two special speakers that will talk federal and state issues. Congressman Frank Lucas will talk DC stuff while Adria Berry will discuss the red hot topic at the state level- Medical Marijuana.

Cattlemen and cattlewomen will then put their heads together to consider the policy now on the books from last July and tweak or change as they see fit.

More details and a final chance to register is available here.

AND- the Noble Research Institute is offering a free Steak and Eggs breakfast if you want to show up at 7:45 as Hugh Aljoe from NRI will be giving an update about the transformation that Noble is in the middle of in their efforts to be all about Regenerative Ranching in the days ahead- details on that available here.

Both KC and yours truly will be on hand to cover the event- we hope to see you there!
