OCA Prepares for 30th Annual Range Round-Up

The 30th Annual Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Association (OCA) Range Round-Up is coming up Friday and Saturday August 22 and 23. This year's event is being partnered with Oklahoma Ford Dealers at the State Fairgrounds Jim Norick Arena in Oklahoma City. Performances will begin at 7:30 p.m each night. The annual event raises funds for charity. This marks the 18th year the selected charity has been the Children’s Miracle Network. To date OCA has donated more than $441,500.00 to the Children's Hospital Foundation in Oklahoma City. Coming up on our In The Field segment Saturday morning, OCA staff will talk with Radio Oklahoma Network Farm News Director Ron Hays about legendary event. OCA Executive Vice President Michael Kelsey said they like to call the event 'Cowboys Helping Kids'.   

"It's a fantastic group of people, doctors, folks that are working with people who really need it and our committee has had an opportunity to tour and go up and see firsthand, its just a fantastic facility," Kelsey said. "It's such a great honor for us to be able partner with them."

The 30th Annual OCA Range Round-Up will feature 12 teams consisting of 16 ranches. This year’s completing ranches include: Alfalfa County Land & Cattle, Cherokee, Okla; Buford Ranches, LLC, Welch, Okla.; Davison & Sons Cattle Co., Arnett, Okla.; Drummond Land & Cattle Co., Pawhuska, Okla; Gray G Bar Ranch, Grainola, Okla.; Hall Ranch, Comanche, Okla, Daube Cattle Co., Ardmore, Okla.; Hitch Ranch, Guymon, Okla.; McCoy Ranch, Ada, Okla.; Beebe Livestock, Ada, Okla.; Kelly Ranch, Marlow, Okla.; Bearce Ranch, Marlow, Okla.; Treadwell Land & Cattle Co., Frederick, Okla.; McPhail Land & Cattle, Snyder, Okla.; Sugarloaf Ranch, Duncan, Okla.; and 3C Cattle Co., Mill Creek, Okla. OCA Association Marketing Spokesperson Dallas Henderson said these cowboys will compete in events that mirror many ranch activities.

"They got six events that they will compete in from wild cow milking, team branding, team penning, stray gathering and a few others," Henderson said. "And it's events they do every day on their ranches... in gathering their cattle, going out and penning a few."

The event will also feature a trade show and a working ranch horse competition that will be held on Saturday morning at 8 a.m. at Jim Norick Arena. Anyone who would like to watch the working ranch horse competition is welcome to attend.
