Cattle Chute Demos Back Inside and Twice Daily at the Oklahoma City Farm ShowThu, 15 Apr 2021 05:29:17 CDT
The 2021 Oklahoma City Farm Show kicks off a three day run today- opening from 9 am to 5 pm Thursday and Friday and then 9 am to 4 pm on Saturday in the giant Bennett Event Center on the OKC Fairgrounds. One of the popular features among cattle producers that returns is the Cattle Chute Demos. For the second year in a row- the weather won't impact the twice a day live demo- as the Demonstrations have been moved in to the Centennial Building just steps away from the Bennett Center.
For those who attend- there will be a drawing at each of the six sessions over the three days for five hundred dollars in show bucks that can be used towards the purchase of a cattle chute or other products from any of the vendors participating in the Demo.
Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays talked with Priefert Sales Rep Joey Gamble, who has helped organize the Demos this year- and he says it is a great way for a cattle producer to see how a chute processes cattle with a side by side comparision in real time.
Gamble says that the number of companies who are showing off their Squeeze Chutes is down this year- because the industry has seen unprecedented demand over the last year as ranchers have cleaned out the supply of these type products that are in the pipeline- leaving a backlog of orders as manufacturers have struggled to keep up with the demand in 2020 and now into 2021.
