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 us 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.

Rural Oklahoma is full of some of the greatest success stories throughout the entire state and is the main reason Oklahoma is on track to become a top 10 state. 

The Road to Rural Prosperity will dive into these stories each week, bringing you insight into the great things happening in and to rural Oklahoma. We will bring you stories covering rural life, agriculture, energy, healthcare, tourism, and politics affecting rural America. 

The Road to Rural Prosperity is here to tell stories about rural America, for rural America.

KC Sheperd talks with Jed Green, the founder of the group ORCA- Oklahomans for Responsible Cannabis Action. They discuss the problems that have developed in rural Oklahoma because of the explosive growth of medical marijuana production in the state- and of the need for better regulation of the industry- as well as recognition of the economic benefits Green believes are a part of the arrival of this industry- especially in areas where legal operations are being established.
