Oklahoma CattleWomen, in partnership with the Oklahoma National Stockyards, is hosting the second-ever Cultivating CattleWomen event on June 4 at the stockyards.
OCW’s mission with the event is to “cultivate knowledgable and successful ranchers through hands-on experiences and trainings.” In order to do so, Cultivating CattleWomen will feature an instructional calving demonstration with a life-size calving simulator, Beef Quality Assurance training where you can earn or renew your own BQA certification, and a legislative Q&A panel with three Oklahoma legislators with a focus on agriculture law. Those legislators are Kirby Smith, JanLee Rowlett, and Skye McNeil.
The event is open to all men and women who want to attend. Last year’s event saw 60 cattlewomen in attendance from four different states, and OCW plans on an even larger turnout this year.
The event will be hosted at the Oklahoma National Stockyards at 9 a.m. and catered by McClintock Saloon & Chophouse. Casual dress is expected for attendees and there will be enough free time between events for people to tour the stockyards themselves. Admission for OCW members is free; for non-members it is $20, however the admission fee also grants an OCW membership for one year.
