National Livestock, All American Beef Battalion Fund Raiser November 22nd

Thu, 18 Nov 2021 18:41:40 CST

National Livestock, All American Beef Battalion Fund Raiser November 22nd The All American Beef Board is made up of cattle-industry members devoted to fostering an appreciation, respect and honor for American military service members whose sacrifices have, and will continue to make, our freedoms possible, one steak at a time.

Each year, The National Livestock Companies, in partnership with Oklahoma National Stockyards and the Oklahoma City Livestock Exchange, host a fundraiser that helps AABB’s efforts. The COVID-19 pandemic prevented the event from going forward last year. Jon Rich, president of the National Livestock Credit Corps, told Radio Oklahoma’s own Ron Hays about coming back this year.

“Our plan is to provide a feed for the buyers and other folks who will be out there,” Rich said. “We are expecting a good fund raiser.”

The fund-raising event is set to begin at 12:30 p.m. Nov. 22, in the sale arena of the Stockyards, just a couple of days before Thanksgiving. Rich said the timing is strategic, hoping the holiday spirit will encourage donators to give.

The highlight of the fundraiser is bidding on a steer donated by 3C Cattle Feeders and the Clyde Runyan family of Mill Creek, Okla. The steer will be bought and sold several times; each time, funds go to AABB. For those who do not wish to participate in the auction, individual donations may also be made. On average, the day racks up $40,000 to $50,000.

To see how you can participate or donate this holiday season, visit the AABB website or call Debbie Wedel at 800-310-0220.
