Cattlemen’s Steak Fry Set for June 9

The Missouri Cattlemen’s Association is hosting its 15th Annual Cattlemen’s Steak Fry June 9 in the Agriculture Building located on the Missouri State Fairgrounds in Sedalia, Missouri. MCA Policy and Legislative Affairs Committee Chair Jimmie Long said the purpose of the annual event is to honor past MCA presidents and raise funds for the association’s Political Action Committee.

“This is a fun event with an important purpose. Participants take time to recognize the efforts of the association’s past presidents and also raise significant funds for the PAC,” said Long, adding that last year’s event raised more than $50,000. “We open this event to the public and expect more than 500 people to attend.”

Long, who is also a past president of the association, said the annual steak fry has grown substantially in just a few years. He attributes the success to the growing awareness that it takes money to ensure candidates who understand and value Missouri agriculture are elected in the state.

“Unfortunately, money matters in politics. It takes money to win elections and we want to make certain that people are elected who will ensure agriculture remains the top economic driver in this state,” said Long.

The event previously took place during the week and in a smaller venue.

“We moved the event to a larger venue and to a Saturday. It worked very well, so we are continuing down that road.”

The event is held at the same time and location as the MCA All-Breeds Junior Show. Visit to purchase individual tickets, a table or for sponsorship opportunities.
