Empty Ralgro Wheels Valuable to Oklahoma Cattlemen’s AssociationThu, 17 Jul 2014 15:31:00 CDT
Each Ralgro® (zeranol) wheel a Oklahoma cattle producer uses yields a 4,000% ROI at the ranch and $1 for the Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Association. Let’s roll in those empty wheels for cash.
“The Wheels for Bucks program and Ralgro deliver value to the producer in two ways,” says Richard Gebhart, OCA President “members benefit from the additional weight Ralgro adds to their calves and our association gains more cash resources.”
For every wheel received during the 62nd Anniversary Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Association Convention, Merck Animal Health will give $1 to help fund OCA scholarship and leadership programs.
“Support from Merck Animal Health through the Wheels for Bucks program allows us to help support scholarship and leadership training for Oklahoma’s next generation of ranchers,” says Gebhart. “We’re looking to break our record of returned Ralgro wheels in 2014.”
The Wheels for Bucks program is a partnership between Merck Animal Health and participating state cattlemen’s organizations. Members bring in their empty Ralgro wheels to their annual state meeting to help raise money for their association.
Don’t forget to save your wheels and bring them to the OCA Convention and Trade Show on July 24, 25 & 26, 2014 at the Reed Conference Center in Midwest City, OK.
