The OCA Cattlemen’s Leadership Academy (CLA) is targeted for beef producers ages 25 – 40. The program is designed to develop young members through industry exposure, education and association communication.
CLA consists of a series of four seminars designed to expose participants to leaders from all segments of the industry, including: purebred, cow-calf, backgrounding, dairy, feeding, processing, retail, foodservice, animal health, marketing, finance, etc. Essential to the overall program are industry issues sessions and business/financial management training. The seminars will provide participants the opportunity to further explore our business, gain essential information and network with fellow OCA members.
Each year 20 OCA member/beef producers are selected through an online application process to participate.
CLA Participant Qualifications are:
- Active in the Oklahoma Beef Industry
- Between the ages of 25 and 40

This is any excellent opportunity to become an better informed and prepared future leader of the cattle industry. The CLA year runs from July to July. If you would like to learn more about the program call the OCA Office at 405.235.4391.
