Tue, 26 Jul 2022 13:50:48 CDT

Mike Frey, Named 2022 OCA Cattleman of the Year Last Saturday evening, Mike Frey of Kingfisher, Okla. was named Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Association’s (OCA) Cattleman of the Year. This award is the highest honor that the OCA bestows upon a member and was designed to recognize OCA members who have made significant contributions to the OCA and to the Oklahoma beef industry.

“Mike has given a tremendous amount of his time, energy and expertise to OCA,” said OCA President Byron Yeoman. “He continues to remain very active as a past president serving on the Executive Committee the past two years.

Mike was born and raised in Mulhall and moved to Kingfisher after graduating from Oklahoma State University with an Animal Science degree in 1985. Mike and his wife Jamae established a registered Angus operation on a Centennial farm, including land that was claimed by Jamae’s great-grandfather in the 1889 land run. Mike and his family raise registered Angus cattle focusing on calving ease and carcass value in the bulls and replacement heifers. This past year, Mike and Jaryn, his daughter raised the top 3 selling bulls at the Oklahoma/Texas Angus bull sale.

“His leadership is solid, steady and insightful, not only in OCA but also shines brightly in his home community,” said Yeoman. “Mike perfectly represents the service, integrity, honor and leadership that the OCA Cattleman of Year embodies.”

Leadership involvement is also so important to Mike. He served on one of the first Oklahoma Junior Cattlemen’s Association Board of Directors. As well as serving on the OCA Board for many years and was president in 2011-13. He has served on the Oklahoma Angus Association Board of Directors as well as the OSU Animal Science Alumni Association Board of Directors. He participated in the Oklahoma Agriculture Leadership Academy in 1988 to 1990. In his home community of Kingfisher, he serves on the Chamber of Commerce, Lion’s Club, Development Foundation and Rural Water District.

The OCA is the trusted voice of the Oklahoma Cattle Industry and works to protect and empower Oklahoma cattlemen today, to serve tomorrow. OCA is the only voice that speaks solely for the cattlemen of Oklahoma and represents beef producers in all 77 counties across the state. The OCA officers, board of directors and membership encourages you to join us in our advocacy efforts to ensure less government intervention, lower taxes and a better bottom line.
