It was an honor to be guest speaker this years annual Cattleman’s convention at the Embassy Suits Norman Oklahoma.
Daughter Bella Tipton and Lt. Governor Matt Pennell and myself OCA convention.
My friend the Lt. Governor of Oklahoma, Matt Pinnell is a fantastic speaker and spoke at the evening banquet. He had the cheering when he spoke about making our state car tag and using the image BEEF on it. We gave Matt a new silver belly cowboy hat that fits him perfectly. You can see him wearing it here.
While at the convention I had a great time visiting with old friends swapping stories of working cattle as a boy at auction yard.
This is a photo of the daughter of the auctioneer Whitey Norse who worked for my Uncle Red who owned the Live stock Auction in Tonkawa Oklahoma, for my entire youth where my father and I worked along my life long friend Billy Scott. I have to say that working on the feed lot and auction yard thought me more than all my years at the University. I learned how to auctioneer among many other skills only learned on the job.
Oklahoma Cattleman’s Association (OCA) exists to defend the beef cattle industry at our Nation’s Capitol, our State Legislature and in the media. The OCA represents about 5,000 Oklahoma ranching families. We believe that by standing together, we can meet issues head-on and impact the changes and ideas that will affect our future and our livelihood. Cattlemen share common interests, including respect for the land and livestock entrusted to us. Standing together we can protect those common interests.
