Beef prices and stocking shortages from the Covid-19 pandemic have consumers asking how they can support local, and buy beef directly from ranchers. The Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Association (OCA) partnered with AgBoost to build a powerful resource to meet this skyrocketing demand. This powerful application, a product of AgBoost’s synergistic partnership with the Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Association, connects buyers to sellers by enabling individual member ranches the ability to list product, speak to consumers, and sell beef directly to the public.

Time to celebrate

Clinton Public School Foundation’s annual golf tournament, scheduled for Sept. 26, is normally its most reliable source of the private donor funds needed to maintain its nonprofit status. But it’s uncertain what turnout and sponsorships will look like this year, said CPSF executive director Erin Adams, or even whether or not it will be held.

Two weekend arrests were made by the Clinton Police Department with both containing numerous charges.

Mayor David Berrong said the city began taking applications for a new city manager on Friday. The job posting will appear statewide online.
