The 31st anniversary of the Oklahoma Cattlemen's Association (OCA) and Oklahoma Ford Dealers Range Round-Up will be returning to the Lazy E Arena near Guthrie. The OCA Range Round-Up will be held on Friday, August 28 and Saturday, August 29 with both performances at 7 p.m. Tickets can be bought at the door or reserved early online through the Lazy E website. Doors open at 5:00 p.m. to allow time for attendees to visit the trade show.

The OCA Range Round-Up set out on a mission back in 1985 to provide family entertainment, promote beef and raise money for charity. For the 19th year, the OCA Range Round-Up will benefit the Children's Hospital Foundation. OCA Executive Vice President Michael Kelsey said to date the Range Round-Up has contributed more than $404,000.00 to the charity.

"We are so fortunate in Oklahoma to have this facility right here in Oklahoma City, where if, God-forbide, if a family gets in need of this type of medical attention, they can stay here at home and do that, so, it's just a great honor to work with these great folks," Kelsey said.

The event will still consist of twelve ranch teams consisting of 'real ranch' cowboys that compete in six different events that mirror real activities done on the ranch. This year's completing ranches include: Alfalfa County Land & Cattle, Cherokee, Okla.; Spur Ranch, Vinita, Okla.; Buford Ranches, LLC, Welch, Okla.; Davison & Sons Cattle Co., Arnett, Okla.; Wayland Cattle Co., Arnett, Okla.; Drummond Land & Cattle Co., Pawhuska, Okla; Gray G Bar Ranch, Grainola, OK; Hall Ranch, Comanche, Okla, Daube Cattle Co., Ardmore, 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.; Lazy Rafter Slash Ranch, Lenapah, Okla.; and Stierwalt Ranch & Cattle Co., Shidler, Okla.

It is also very common for the Range Roundup to have fourth and fifth generation ranches. As a cattlemen's association, Kelsey said they are very proud of that heritage as well.

"That gives you a lineage of stewardship of the land and the cattle as well as the family unit working together," Kelsey said.

Held in conjunction with the OCA Range Round-Up, a Working Ranch Horse competition will be held on Saturday morning at 8 a.m., August 29 at the Lazy E Arena. Anyone who would like to watch the working ranch horse competition is welcome to attend.

This year the OCA Range Round-Up is partnering with the American Farmers and Ranchers/Oklahoma Farmers Union LEAD program for cattle seminars on Saturday starting at 11:30. Below is the full lineup of educational speakers. For more information or to register contact AFR.
