Each year, the OCA provides an opportunity to OCA’s Young Cattleman’s Leadership Conference and Cattlemen’s Leadership Academy alumni to apply for a scholarship to attend the Cattle Industry Convention.
The scholarship dollars are made possible through Merck Animal Health’s Wheels For Bucks program. For every empty Ralgro Wheel that the OCA collects each year, Merck Animal Health gives the OCA one dollar. Last year the OCA collected 4,189 empty wheels. These dollars are being invested back into the industry by sending young leaders to NCBA events.
“We are extremely excited that Merck provided this program so that we can offer this opportunity to the next generation of agriculturalists,” said Charlie Swanson, OCA President. " It’s not only healthy, but vital to our organization and industry to continually identify and cultivate young leaders and provide opportunities for involvement,” Swanson said.
We welcome any YCLC or CLA Alumni to apply for a scholarship to attend the 119th Annual Cattle Industry Convention and NCBA Trade Show on Feb. 1-3, 2017 in Nashville, TN.
Deadline to apply is Dec. 12, 2016.

If you use Ralgro or know a friend or neighbor who does, encourage them to save the empty wheels!
