OCA's Cattlemen's Academy

OCA recognizes the importance of serving individual members across the state, and the goal of the Cattlemen’s Academy is to offer informative, hands-on learning experiences as part of a current OCA membership. Each year, the program will focus on a different aspect of the cattle industry with a new meeting series that is important to producers in the state of Ohio.

Cattlemen’s Academy clinics are free for OCA members to attend. Those who are not current OCA members may still attend but must pay $75 per family upon registration. This cost includes clinic attendance and an OCA membership. A meal is included for each participant at each of the clinics.

Attendance at each clinic is limited for the in-person programs. Producers should register early, or risk missing out on the chance to take part in this unique learning opportunity for their operations'.
