Summer Update: Preparations Continue for the 2016 BWCAA Annual Meeting, National Cattle Show and Sale


The Annual Meeting, National Cattle Show and Sale committees continue to make progress developing this year’s event which takes place September 30 and October 1, 2016 in Purcell, Oklahoma.

  • Official Guide: We are in the process of developing an “Official Guide” which will include all meeting schedules, rules, regulations and entry forms for the show and sale, maps, events and other pertinent information. It will be printed and mailed in early August and also available on the BWCAA website.
    • We are accepting ads (whole page, half page and quarter page) for inclusion in the Guide. Highlight your ranch, cattle or other business in the Guide. Contact Sue at or by phone 218-568-7003
  • Sponsorships Available: The Show committee is making available the opportunity for members to support the Show by offering $50 sponsorships for each major show class. A banner with sponsors’ names and/or ranch designation will be displayed during the Show and also included in the Official Guide. Contact Sue at or by phone 218-568-7003 to find out which classes are available for sponsorships.
  • Volunteers Needed: We are still in need of some volunteers for help with the Show. Specifically;
    • Sanitation and Safety Inspector – check stalls routinely for cleanliness and organization – order remediation if necessary.
  • Deadlines: Please take note of the following deadlines for consigning animals to the Sale and entering the Show:
    • Deadline for consigned animals to be included in the Sale Catalog is August 5th. Be sure to send a photo of the animal for the catalog when you fill out the application form.
    • Deadline for consigning animals to the Sale – September 30.
    • Deadline for entering animals in the Show – September 15th.
  • Entry Forms for the Show and Sale are available on the BWCAA website under the “Forms” button.
