The 34th Annual OCA Ranch Rodeo is coming up August 24 and 25 at the Lazy E Arena in Guthrie, Okla.
The OCA Ranch Rodeo consists of twelve ranch teams of ‘real ranch’ cowboys that compete in five different events mirroring many of the activities they do on the ranch. The competition is fierce, but the cowboys don’t take home much more than bumps and bragging rights when it’s all said and done.
The 2018 participating ranch teams include: Alfalfa County Land & Cattle, Cherokee, Okla.; Spur Ranch, Vinita, Okla.; Buford Ranches, LLC, Hominy, Okla.; Stuart Ranch, Waurika, Okla.; Drummond Land & Cattle Co., Pawhuska, Okla.; Hall Ranch & Daube Cattle Co., Comanche and Ardmore, Okla.; Treadwell Land & Cattle, Frederick, Okla.; Kelly Ranch, Marlow, Okla.; Lazy Rafter Slash Ranch, Lenapah, Okla.; Choctaw Nation Ranches, Durant, Okla.; Whitmire Ranch, Delaware, Okla.; and Stierwalt Ranch & Cattle Co., Shidler, Okla.
“Our loyal fans will notice a name change from Range Round-Up to Ranch Rodeo,” said Tim Drummond, Chairman of the OCA Ranch Rodeo Committee. “But our mission remains the same.”
The Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Association in partnership with Oklahoma Ford Dealers set out on a mission back in 1985 to provide family entertainment, promote beef and raise money for charity.
According to Drummond, for the last 20 years, the selected charity has been the Children’s Hospital Foundation. CHF funds children’s medical research and treatment for children right here in Oklahoma.
The event is often referred to as, ‘Cowboys Helping Kids’. Last year’s donation was $22,000 for a total of more than $475,000 given to the Children’s Hospital Foundation.
“Plan to come watch the show, support the Children’s Hospital Foundation and cheer on your favorite ranch team,” Drummond said.
The Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Association and Oklahoma Ford Dealers extend an invitation to you to attend the OCA Ranch Rodeo, August 24 and 25 at the Lazy E Arena. Learn more at www.okcattlemen.org.
