2020 Beef Day at the Capitol

Thursday, May 14, 2020
9:30 a.m. - 1 p.m.
State Capitol Rotunda

*Open to all OCA members!


 

The purpose of Beef Day is to provide our elected officials and those that work with them a tasty beef meal while promoting beef and building relationships. Oklahoma is the 5th largest beef producing state with more than 55,000 ranches statewide.

“Beef cattle is Oklahoma’s #1 Commodity adding over $3 billion to the Oklahoma economy annually,” said Michael Kelsey, OCA Executive Vice President. “It's important for us to educate our elected officials that beef is more than just what's for dinner here in Oklahoma!”

In addition to the OCA, The Oklahoma Beef Council, Oklahoma CattleWomen, Noble Research Institute and the Oklahoma State University Animal Science Extension set up booths inside the capitol rotunda all in an effort to promote beef and enlighten attendees on the daily, diligent efforts of ranchers to care for land and cattle.

"Events like this are a great tool to educate and create relationships,” Kelsey said. “Cultivating relationships with legislators and their staff is vital to my staff and I while advocating for Oklahoma beef producers.”

Complimentary boot shines will also available throughout the day.
