Auction set locally to help South Dakota ranchers


Woodward, Okla. —


Earlier this year, Lori White and her husband Benji had planned to donate a Red Angus heifer to an auction that benefits the Oklahoma Red Angus Association for the preparations of the 2016 Nation Red Angus Association Convention.

“When I heard about the ranchers in South Dakota, I told my husband that I’d rather have that heifer go to benefit the ranchers there,” she said.

So an idea was hatched of a hastily organized benefit auction to send some support from Northwest Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Foundation  and women to those brothers and sisters in the industry, White said.

That didn’t leave much time for White to begin calling and soliciting donations for the auspicious event, which is scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday evening at Woodward County Fairgrounds building.

Included in the offerings for the auction are:

1. A western wreath by the Burlap Diva

2. A hand-stitched baby quilt from Mike and Annie Switzer of Quartermaster Creek Angus

3. A custom cowhide cap with brand from Chrome Cowgirls

4. A 17 cal. Rifle with scope and bipod from Mac McKinsey Ford of Clinton.

5. A hog hunt from Chain Ranch Outfitters

6. Two “green light inspections” from Western Equipment.

7. Western art from Cattleman’s Choice Feedyard

All funds that are derived from the auction will go directly to Rancher Relief Fund, an arm of South Dakota Cattleman’s Association.

According to White, there will be other items that come in for the auction before the event.

If you would like to donate please contact White at 580-334-2803.
