All American Beef Battalion Using Cattle to Raise Money to Thank Troops for Their Service

Wed, 30 Nov 2011 14:11:05 CST

All American Beef Battalion Using Cattle to Raise Money to Thank Troops for Their Service The Oklahoma National Stockyards will be hosting a special kind of auction this upcoming Monday, December 5, that will be an opportunity to give back to Oklahoma troops that have served overseas. The All American Beef Battalion will be auctioning off a heifer calf, donated by Bryan and Carrie Linn of Verden, at 11:00 a.m. and all money from the auction will be used to serve beef to troops and their families.


The All American Beef Battalion is a charity organization consisting of individuals and families that are part of the U.S. beef cattle industry and work to provide support for troops and their families. Some of the organizations main events are steak feeds where soldiers and family members are served a 16 to 18 ounce ribeye steak.


Robert York, President and CEO of National Livestock Credit Corp, is involved in the organization and has helped coordinate the sale at the stockyards. York says he believes this is a very worthwhile cause because it promotes U.S. beef while still honoring soldiers for their service.


A similiar auction was held last year and with the calf being sold multiple times, the organization raised over $27,000 and York says they hope to raise this much or more again this year. York also pointed out that 100% of the funds are used to purchase supplies and steaks because the All American Beef Battalion is a strictly volunteer organization.
