Great Plains Kubota's Bill Clark Honored by Oklahoma Cattlemen's Association

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 13:00:56 CDT

Great Plains Kubota's Bill Clark Honored by Oklahoma Cattlemen's Association The Oklahoma Cattlemen's Association (OCA) honored Bill Clark, President of Great Plains, Inc. as the Allied Industry Award Winner. The award was presented during the recent OCA Convention and Trade Show. The Allied Industry Award was developed to recognize industry leaders who have gone above and beyond to provide support to the OCA; or in the case of Bill Clark, the Oklahoma Cattlemen's Foundation (OCA), a charitable arm of the OCA.

Allied Industry support comes in two forms; financial support and leadership.

"With the leadership of Bill Clark, Great Plains Kubota helped the Foundation expand its scholarship program, and opened many new doors for the youth of our industry by allowing us to set up a scholarship endowment fund within the Foundation," said Charlie Swanson, OCA President. "This is the first endowment fund made possible with the help of our allied industry professionals."

According to Swanson, "Bill never hesitated when we asked him to donate an RTV to be raffled off in order to start the fundraising process in 2015."

In 2016, Great Plains Kubota donated a Kubota Lawnmower which was raffled off during the recent OCA Convention.

According to Bill Clark, "I think the real question isn't why would we partner with OCA, but rather, why wouldn't we partner with the OCA. As Kubota continues to expand its equipment line into the larger Ag market, I feel it's our duty as a Kubota dealership to represent Kubota equipment to the right customer, and OCA members are these customers. Most of them, like us, depend on equipment to manage their cattle operations, and while we're excited for the opportunity to earn new business, our main purpose of supporting the OCA is to help establish a solid future for the beef industry in Oklahoma."

The mission of OCF is to preserve the heritage of the West and the viability of Oklahoma's beef cattle industry through research and education.

"It's truly an honor and pleasure to have to opportunity to form partnerships with companies like Great Plains Kubota and industry leaders like Bill Clark," Swanson said.

Great Plains, Inc., operates four Kubota dealerships in Central Oklahoma. Bill has owned and operated numerous successful businesses and enjoys spending as much time as possible working on the family's ranch.
