Buford Ranch and Hall-Daube Share Champion Team Honors at 2015 OCA Range Roundup

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 07:16:07 CDT

Buford Ranch and Hall-Daube Share Champion Team Honors at  2015 OCA Range Roundup With record ticket sales, the 31st annual Oklahoma Cattlemen's Association Range Roundup came to an end Saturday night at the Lazy E Arena in Guthrie. After the two evening sessions, a pair of ranch teams tied in the overall standings in the quest to be the Champion Range Roundup Team. Buford Ranch of Hominy, Oklahoma had a strong Saturday night performance and tied the team that was made up of cowboys from Hall Ranch of Comanche and Daube Cattle Company of Ardmore, Oklahoma. (the winning teams are pictured here- courtesty of OCA)

The Buford family formed a LLC in 1997- but their roots in Oklahoma ranching extends back decades, with ties to the old Craddock Ranch west of Hominy and the Double Rafter Ranch and Rafter D Ranch of Osage County. The Buford family traces their ranch heritage back to 1941. Ranch team members that competed at the 2015 Range Roundup included Doug Branch, John Holloway, Rielly Hooloway, Chad Ray and George Henry.

Both the Hall Ranch and Daube Cattle Company claim a pedigree that begins before statehood in the late 1800s. Rhonda Hall's dad and brother own the Blunk Ranch that includes land in southwest Kansas and northwest Oklahoma. When she married her husband Shannon- they bought ranchland in Stephens County and thus the Hall Ranch was born. Ranch headquarters are near Loco, Oklahoma.

The Daube Cattle Company traces back to Sam Daube who came to Indian territory in 1885 from Germany and settled near Ardmore. Their brand, still used today, is the Double O and was first registered in 1886 with the Choctaw Livestock Protective Association. Today's operation includes 1,000 cows on ranchland in the Arbuckle Mountains in Southern Oklahoma.

The Hall- Daube ranch team included Whitney Hall, Cory Trammel, Bud Walker, Jimmy Walker, Bart Nichols and Dave Daube.

The twelve ranch teams competing in the Range Roundup were involved in six events- Saddle Bronc Riding, Stray Gathering, Team Branding, Team Penning, the Wild Horse Race and Wild Cow Milking- all events that are rooted back into practices that are a part of western ranch life.

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 is benefiting 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.
