Oklahoma Cattlemen to Visit Red Carpet Country
25th Annual OCA Summer Ranch Tour 


OKLAHOMA CITY, OKLA., June 2, 2015 - The 25th Annual Oklahoma Cattlemen's Association (OCA) Summer Ranch Tour is scheduled for June 29 and 30 and will take participants through Red Carpet Country - Northwest Oklahoma.  Northwest Oklahoma has been Cowboy Country since the days of the Chisholm Trail and also saw the last great buffalo herd in the 1870s.


"Our tour begins the first day with a different educational twist as we look at how feed and forage makes its way to the cattle on our ranches. We will look at everything from soil farming to salt harvesting to milling feed," said Jeff Jaronek, OCA Tour Coordinator.  "On day two, we will return to our roots and visit a few ranching operations on our way home after a fun stop that morning. This year promises to be an interesting tour that has been 25 years in the making and you won't want to miss out!"


Register soon to ensure your seat on the bus.  Participants are responsible for reserving their own hotel room.  An agenda, registration information and hotel information  can be found online at


"Events like this would not be possible without generous sponsors.  Thank you to Xcel Feedyard, Wootton New Holland and Farm Credit of Western Oklahoma," Jaronek said.
