Washita County Cattlemen Win a Priefert SO4 ChuteTue, 27 Jul 2021 08:24:36 CDT
Washita County Cattlemen’s Associations won a Priefert SO4 Chute and Carriage during the recent Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Association (OCA) 69th Annual Convention and Trade Show.
“Each year the unified county cattlemen’s associations compete to win the use of a Priefert SO4 Chute,” said Darrel Shepherd, OCA Membership Committee Chairman. The OCA has a unified county program in place which means all members belonging to the county cattlemen’s association also belong to the OCA.”
A Priefert SO4 chute with carriage is awarded to the unified county that has the most growth from July 1 to June 30. Washita County Cattlemen's Associations recruited 39 new members over the year.
“Congratulations to Washita County Cattlemen. Washita County Cattlemen’s Association has really grown and become very active and engaged in the recent years,” Shepherd said. “Grassroots engagement is so valuable, and the Unified County program is beneficial to both the local and state organizations.”
Just like the County Cattlemen’s Association affiliates, OCA is a member run and driven organization.
“Without membership growth, young member recruitment and current members who are devoted to spurring us on, the OCA would perish. We appreciate industry partners like Priefert Ranch and Rodeo Equipment who step up to help the OCA grow through generous donations and sponsorships.
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, like the Washita County Cattlemen, who contribute to the success of the OCA.
