The Ohio Cattlemen’s Association will be moving forward with a new format for the 2021 OCA annual meeting.
The event will focus on the need to conduct the business of the association while protecting the safety and welfare of OCA members. The 2021 event will look different with a new schedule that includes educational presentations both virtual and in-person, policy development and the recognition of award winners and Ohio Cattlemen’s Foundation scholarship recipients all scheduled into one daylong program.
Some of the highlights of the 2021 event will be an industry update by Colin Woodall, CEO for the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association who will present a post-election report that includes expectations for the cattle industry. Dr. Derrell Peel, professor of agribusiness in the Department of Agricultural Economics at Oklahoma State University also will be presenting. He serves as the Extension livestock marketing specialist for the university with a program focus that includes livestock market outlook and marketing/risk management education for cattle producers.
Attendance for the event will be limited to comply with all COVID safety precautions and regulations. The traditional evening awards banquet will be discontinued for 2021 to allow members to focus on association business and then return to their farms.
All attendees must be OCA members.
