Central Life Sciences (Central) has partnered with the Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Foundation (OCF) to provide $5,000 in scholarships.
“The Central team simply knew we wanted to help Oklahomans make their educational dreams a reality,” says Mark Upton, National Director of Sales, Feed Additives for CLS.
A $2,000 scholarship will be awarded to one graduate student and three students pursuing postsecondary education will receive $1,000 scholarships toward their careers and scholastic endeavors.
Central is dedicated to giving back to communities and customers who utilize their product Altosid® IGR. As a result, the scholarships are directly funded by through product sales in Oklahoma. Customers should proof of purchases to Central’s rebate website Altosidigr.com/rebate.
A webinar is scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 16 for an informative discussion on how to economically control horn flies on your beef cows and how your purchase helps fund scholarships for Oklahoma's agricultural youth. Register for the webinar at okcattlemen.org/webinars.
Central is excited to introduce themselves to a younger generation of agriculturalists. Supporting agricultural youth springs from an understanding that the future health and success of the company relies on the quality of young agriculturists making a career in the industry.
“The OCF scholarship program has grown each year and that is a direct result of support from industry partners like Central Life Sciences,” Shackelford said. “The agriculture industry seems to mutually agree that educating and encouraging our agricultural youth it not just important, it’s vital.”
The Oklahoma Cattlemen's Foundation was created to provide a charitable trust for the Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Association and Oklahoma Junior Cattlemen’s Association. When you support the Oklahoma Cattlemen's Foundation, you support beef cattle educational programs, research projects in cooperation with Oklahoma State University, educational scholarships for Oklahoma's 4-H and FFA youth, and the preservation of the Oklahoma beef cattle industry and its traditions.
