MARYSVILLE, Ohio — The 33rd Ohio Beef Expo, hosted by the Ohio Cattlemen’s Association (OCA), was held March 18-21 at the Ohio Expo Center in Columbus, Ohio.

At this year’s event, AMW (Athens, Meigs and Washington counties) Cattlemen’s Association was honored with the Friend of the Expo Award for their dedication and contributions to the Expo’s annual success.

The AMW Cattlemen’s Association has served the Ohio Beef Expo by preparing lunches and distributing them to each exhibitor in the Ohio Beef Expo trade show for the past five years. Although they were unable to volunteer in their usual way for 2021, members still gave a helping hand when needed.

According to a news release from the Association, the organization also strives to distribute scholarships to industry youth, annually sponsor one of the three county fairs, provide Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) programs for local farmers and expose members to educational topics such as vaccination programs, 4-H, grooming and cover crops.

“The Athens, Meigs and Washington County Cattlemen have been instrumental to the success of the Ohio Beef Expo,” said Aaron Arnett, OCA President. “Their enthusiastic support and teamwork are a true testament to their organization and a highlight of Saturday at the Expo.”
