National Livestock to Auction Calf Benefiting All American Beef Battalion

Mon, 15 Nov 2021 15:36:44 CST

National Livestock to Auction Calf Benefiting All American Beef Battalion The National Livestock Companies in partnership with Oklahoma National Stockyards and the Oklahoma City Livestock Exchange are pleased to announce their support, once again, for the All American Beef Battalion (AABB).

On Monday, November 22nd, the Oklahoma National Stockyards will auction a calf for the benefit of the AABB, along with National Livestock providing lunch for those in attendance. The AABB crew is bringing in their cooker and will be preparing a ribeye lunch. The actual sale will take place at approximately 12:30 p.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 Penny, along with her sons Casey and Bear, who have donated the calf for 8 years. Clyde was with the 101st Airborne in Vietnam and always considered this as a privilege to be able to give back to the troops. Runyan passed away in 2019 and his family wants to continue the legacy of donating the calf in his honor.

This is the 10th year for the National Livestock companies, Oklahoma National Stockyards and the Oklahoma City Livestock Exchange to be involved in supporting the AABB. With the 2019 auction bringing in more than $52,000, contributors to this event have raised over $456,000 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 46,000 troops have been fed an American ribeye steak upon their return home from deployment or prior to their deployment.

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 call Debbie for your proxy bid or you may also visit the All American Beef Battalion website and make your donation by PayPal. National Livestock will invoice bidders and contributors and will forward all funds to the AABB. All checks should be made payable to the All American Beef Battalion.
