Dover’s Byron Yeoman Elected to Lead Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Association; New Leadership Elected Byron Yeoman, Dover, was elected to serve as President of the Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Association on Saturday, July 24 during the 69th Annual Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Association (OCA) Convention and Trade Show. Yeoman will serve a two-year term as President.

“I am excited and very honored to serve as the OCA President. I would have never thought when I joined OCA more than 20 years ago that I would be serving in this capacity,” said Byron Yeoman. “The membership is the life and driving force of the association and it is an honor to have been nominated by my peers to lead an organization that means so much to me.”

Darrel Shepherd was elected as the President-Elect. Charlie Swanson, Roosevelt was elected to serve as the Past President’s Council Representative. Each of the six OCA districts has a representative on the Executive Committee. These positions are situated so that two individuals rotate off each year. Jesse Bierig, Ringwood was elected as Northwest District Vice President and Jeremy Kinder, Chattanooga was elected as Southwest District Vice President.

Each year a new director is elected for each district. The directors elected this year are: Northwest - Kyle Barby, Beaver and Kristi Sproul, Isabella; North Central - Tim Stidham, Blackwell; Northeast – Jeff Owen, Vinita; Southwest – Jordan Cook, Cordell; South Central – Kelly Albrecht, Wapanucka; Southeast - Curtis Curry, McAlester.

“The OCA is membership owned and driven. I appreciate the willingness of fellow cattlemen to serve as volunteer leaders and look forward to working together for the good of the industry,” Yeoman said.

The 69th Annual OCA Convention and Trade Show was held July 23 and 24 at the Embassy Suites in Norman, Okla. The event is held in conjunction with the Oklahoma CattleWomen, Inc., and the Oklahoma Junior Cattlemen’s Association’s Annual Meetings. The OCA Convention and Trade Show is the largest annual gathering of cattle producers in Oklahoma. Cattlemen and women come together to create policy, listen to informative speakers, celebrate industry accomplishments, and recognize individuals and groups who contribute to the success of the OCA.
