Opening General Session

Wednesday, January 31, 2018
2:00pm - 4:00pm

Featuring Ree Drummond, Pioneer Woman

The Opening General Session officially kicks off the 2018 Cattle Industry Convention and we have cooked up a great event! Featured keynote speaker will be Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond.  Ree is a writer, photographer, ranch wife, and mother of four. Ree and her husband, Ladd Drummond run a cow calf operation outside of Pawhuska, Oklahoma. The couple recently opened the very successful Pioneer Woman Mercantile in Pawhuska where they get 6,000 visitors a day on average. Drummond Land and Cattle is member of the Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Association and frequent participant of the annual Range Round up event.

 

Ree is also the author of the #1 best-selling cookbook The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Recipes from an Accidental Country Girl and the 2011 memoir Black Heels to Tractor Wheels — A Love Story, which debuted at #2 on The New York Times Best Sellers list for nonfiction hardcover. Ree’s children’s picture book, Charlie the Ranch Dog, which chronicles the adventures of her much-beloved basset hound, also premiered at #1 on The New York Times Best Sellers list. Her blog, The PioneerWoman.com, attracts more than 20 million page views per month and was named Weblog of the Year at the 2011, 2010 and 2009 Bloggie Awards. Her fans have an extra glimpse into her life on her hit Food Network Show, The Pioneer Woman.

 

Join us at the Opening General Session as Ree tells us about trading in her Black Heels for Tractor Wheels. This promises to be a great event- Any way you slice it!!
