Merck's Cash for Cartridges Program Funds Scholarship for Claremore Cattleman to Attend Beef Meet

Mon, 30 Jan 2017 17:18:50 CST

Merck's Cash for Cartridges Program Funds Scholarship for Claremore Cattleman to Attend Beef Meet Cattlemen from all over the nation will gather later this week, Feb. 1-3, in Nashville, TN for the 120th Cattle Industry Convention and NCBA Trade Show.



Several OCA members and staff will be traveling to Nashville to take part in the largest cattle industry event in the country.



Among those attending from Oklahoma is Matt Boyer of Claremore. Boyer received a scholarship to attend the Annual Cattle Industry Convention and National Cattlemen's Beef Association (NCBA) Trade Show.



The Oklahoma Cattlemen's Association (OCA) provided this scholarship opportunity to OCA's Young Cattleman's Leadership Conference and Cattlemen's Leadership Academy alumni.



The OCA was able to provide this scholarship through Merck Animal Health's Cash for Cartridges program. The way the program works is Merck pays OCA for every empty Ralgro or Revalor cartridge collected each year. These dollars are being invested back into the industry by sending young leaders to NCBA events.



"Matt is diligent in supporting the OCA's efforts and is always willing to help where he can," said Charlie Swanson, OCA President. "We are very proud of Matt and extremely excited that Merck continued to provide this program so that we can offer this opportunity to the next generation of agriculturalists."



Boyer is an agricultural education instructor at Claremore High School. He and his family operate Beacon Hill Ranch where the raise Hereford cattle.



"It's exciting for me to see young cattlemen with a passion to learn and lead, like Matt. It's not only healthy, but vital to our organization and industry to continually identify and cultivate young leaders and provide opportunities for involvement," Swanson said.



OCA encourages everyone to SAVE empty Raglro and Revalor cartirdges. Bring them to OCA events, drop them off at the OCA office or call 405-235-4391 to arrange to have them picked up.
