Steaks for Troops Fundraiser Set for Monday December 14 at Oklahoma National Stockyards

Fri, 11 Dec 2015 05:28:55

Steaks for Troops Fundraiser Set for Monday December 14 at Oklahoma National Stockyards National Livestock Credit Corporation and affiliated companies are pleased to announce their support, once again, for the All American Beef Battalion.  On Monday, December 14th, 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 6th year for the National Livestock companies to be involved in supporting the All American Beef Battalion. With the 2014 auction bringing in more than $60,000, contributors to this event have raised over $220,000 from the annual auction of a donated calf.


Danny Jones is the President of Superior Livestock, a part of the National Livestock family, and Jones told Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays that "Oklahoma City has stood out as one of the key locations to raise money for the All American Beef Battalion." Jones says the donated calf will be sold and resold several times- and that for those wishing to make a smaller donation- that can be done as an "add on" on Monday- live or via a telephone pledge. You can hear Ron and Danny talk about the Steaks for Troops benefit by clicking on the LISTEN BAR below.


"Many organizations and individuals have joined together for this worthy cause each year. The efforts of many have made this successful and we thank all our partners and friends for their help. Through these auctions, approximately 22,000 troops have been fed an American ribeye steak upon their return home from deployment," stated Robert York, CEO of National Livestock Credit Corporation.


Anyone may support this effort by calling 800-310-0220 and speaking with Debbie Wedel. If you are unable to attend but would still like to support the cause, you can call Debbie for your proxy bid or you may also visit the All American Beef Battalion web site- Steaks for Troops.Com and make your donation by PayPal. National
Livestock will invoice bidders and contributors and will forward all funds to the All American Beef Battalion. All checks should be made payable to the All American Beef Battalion.
