SEDALIA, Mo.  — Many folks around the area gathered at the Missouri State Fairgrounds Saturday night to help support the cattlemen and women of the Show-Me State.

The Missouri Cattlemen’s Association (MCA) stated that more than 400 people attended the event, which raised funds for the association’s Political Action Committee and honored past MCA presidents. The funds were raised through a silent and live auction, where they sold several big ticket items including: a zero-turn lawn mower, custom made signs and pies.

They also auctioned off barb wire art made from salvaged barb wire of the Kansas wild fires. The money raised from the barb wire was donated to the relief fund to support the victims affected by the terrible tragedy.

The Missouri Cattlemen’s Association is a not-for-profit organization that helps bring awareness to the beef industry. They promote beef and help the public understand why beef is such an important part of the diet.
