National Livestock to Auction Calf Benefitting the All American Beef BattalionWed, 11 Dec 2013 14:18:36 CST
National Livestock Credit Corporation and affiliated companies announce their support, once again, for the All American Beef Battalion.
On December 16th, the Oklahoma National Stockyards will auction a calf for the benefit of the All American Beef Battalion. The sale will take place at approximately 11:00 a.m. in the sale arena of the Stockyards.
The calf to be auctioned is being donated by 3C Cattle Feeders and the Clyde Runyan family of Mill Creek, Oklahoma. National Livestock Credit Corporation will invoice buyers and collect checks.
This is the 4th year for the National Livestock companies to be involved in supporting the All American Beef Battalion. Their involvement has helped raise over $120,000 from the annual auction of a donated calf.
“Many organizations and individuals have joined together for this worthy cause each year," said Robert York of National Livestock Credit Corporation. "The efforts of many have made this successful and we thank all our partners and friends for their help. Through these auctions, about 12,000 troops have been fed an American ribeye steak upon their return home from deployment.”
The All American Beef Battalion is comprised of a group of individuals involved in the United States Beef Cattle Industry who are working to support troops fighting the global war on terror. Part of their mission is to organize and sponsor steak feeds, entertainment, programs, meetings and projects with service members and their families while also fostering an appreciation and respect for our Armed Forces Military Service Members.
