OCA Convention On Schedule For July 24-25, Tulsa, So Producers Can "Lean on Pickup" To Discuss Issues
Oklahoma cattle producers will get the chance to “lean on the pickup” and talk about issues important to the industry during the 68th annual meeting of the Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Association, July 24-25 at the Tulsa Southern Hills Marriott.

The COVID-19 pandemic forced OCA to change venues from their traditional site in Norman but Michael Kelsey, OCA executive director, says OCA members are looking forward to the change of scenery. I spoke to Kelsey about the upcoming convention.

We’ve been overwhelmed by the positive response, Kelsey said.

People are telling us they want to meet in person and discuss the issues and that’s what we’re planning to do, Kelsey said.

We invite you to listen to us on great radio stations across the region on the Radio Oklahoma Ag Network weekdays-
