Oklahoma National Stockyards Hosts Eighth Annual Fund Raiser for All American Beef Battalion December 17thFri, 07 Dec 2018 04:57:42 CST
The National Livestock Companies are pleased to announce their support, once again, for the All American Beef Battalion.
On Monday, December 17th, 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 again being donated by 3C Cattle Feeders and the Clyde Runyan family of Mill Creek, Oklahoma. A very special thanks go out to Clyde and
Penny, along with their sons, who have donated the calf for 6 years. Clyde was with the 101st Airborne in Vietnam and considers this a privilege to be able to give back
to the troops.
This is the 8th year for the National Livestock companies to be involved in supporting the All American Beef Battalion. With the 2017 auction bringing in more
than $60,000, contributors to this event have raised over $379,000 from the annual auction of a donated calf.
"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 37,900 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

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
