Annual Meeting & Awards Banquet

Feb. 1, 2025  |  Columbus

Join us for an afternoon of business and policy discussion to decide the association's top priorities for the year, enjoy a delicious lunch with fellow cattlemen and close out the night by celebrating OCA's Annual Award winners. The Annual Meeting and Awards Banquet will be held on Saturday, Feb. 1 at the Hilton Polaris in Columbus, Ohio.

The Ohio Cattlemen's Foundation will host a meeting that will include the presentation of 2023 scholarship recipients. 

The night will conclude with the celebration of seven distinguished award winners for the year in the categories of Young Cattleman of the Year, Industry Service Award, Industry Excellence Award, Seedstock Producer of the Year, Commercial Producer of the Year, Environmental Stewardship Award and the Outstanding County Award. A plated dinner will be served as attendees enjoy viewing the release of the award videos and hearing from the recipients themselves.   

 The night will end with a social event for cattlemen to mingle among peers and participate in live and silent auctions held to raise money for OCA’s Political Action Committee (PAC) that supports ag friendly candidates.
