The Pottawatomie County Cattlemen's Association in partnership with the Pottawatomie County OSU Extension office would like to invite you to an evening of fellowship, education and Award Banquet. The program will be Tuesday, April 10th starting at 6:20pm we will meet in the Tecumseh W.P. Wood Alumni Center, located on the grounds of Tecumseh High School on North 13th.

The awards portion of the meeting will entail Best of County Beef Award, as well as winners of our Pottawatomie County Steer Feed Out.  The final stage of our Steer Feed Out program is an auction for the beef in the contest.

If you have been looking for beef to put in your freezer that is locally and responsibly raised this is an opportunity for you!  We will be selling eight halves of beef to the highest bidder.  If you want less than a half of beef bring a friend and purchase one together.  The carcasses have already been graded and the beef will be ready for pick up the following week.   So, bring your check book and clear out the freezer.  If you have any questions or would like to put in a bid and cannot attend the program please call OSU Extension Ag Educator Kyle Robinson (405) 273-7683.

On the education side we will answer the question: "Is beef a healthy option for us and our loved ones?"  In the news and on social media there is increasing noise about the health of the product we produce and consume.  Sheri Glazier, MS, RDN/LD, Nutrition Consultant, Oklahoma Beef Council, will help us navigate the maze of information being presented as Fact about beef.

Sheri completed her Bachelor of Science in Nutritional Sciences from Oklahoma State University (OSU) in 2010 and her Master of Science Degree in Nutritional Sciences with dietetic internship from OSU in 2012.  Sheri worked for Mercy Hospital in Oklahoma City for 5 years providing inpatient and outpatient medical nutrition therapy.
