Ribeyes With a Message- Oklahoma Cattlemen Selling Vote Yes on State Question 777

Fri, 09 Oct 2015 06:01:17 CDT

Ribeyes With a Message- Oklahoma Cattlemen Selling Vote Yes on State Question 777 For many who attend the Tulsa State Fair- one of the "must eat" foods found on the grounds is the tender, tasty ribeye steak sandwich offered up by the volunteers working the "Beef Tent" of the Oklahoma Cattlemen's Association. Michael Kelsey, the Executive Vice President of the OCA, says sales of the ribeye steak sandwich are trending strong again this year- and with expected good weather this final weekend of the fair- will be very close to the goal of selling 20,000 ribeyes here in 2015. That would improve upon the more than 18,000 sold in 2014.

There is a message being handed out with this fair favorite in 2015- Kelsey says they bought 40,000 paper sandwich wrappers with the Vote Yes for State Question 777 Right to Farm logo on them. OCA plans to use half of them at this year's Tulsa State Fair- will use many more in local events in the months to come and plan to use them again next October in advance of the Right to Farm State Question vote in November 2016.

You can hear Farm Director Ron Hays talk with Michael Kelsey about the tradition of the ribeye steak sandwich and how County Cattlemen's groups step up and help man the Beef Tent each year by clicking on the LISTEN BAR below.

Hays and Kelsey also talk about the effort at the Tulsa State Fair to get cattle producers, young and old, to sign the petition to request a vote on a state secondary beef checkoff. Kelsey says they are enlisting the help of the Junior Cattlemen to solicit signatures this weekend while the junior Heifer show is underway at the Fairgrounds.

Kelsey also talked about the plans to gather signatures this fall by OCA and other groups ar a variety of local, regional and statewide meetings- with the goal to obtain 5,500 signatures to turn into the State Secretary of Agriculture by the latter part of the year- requesting a vote by Cattle Producers in Oklahoma next spring for the right to collect a second dollar that would be controlled by the cattlemen and ladies who repesent the industry on the Oklahoma Beef Council.
