The Oklahoman reports proceeds from Monday’s calf sale at the Oklahoma City National Stockyards will go to the All American Beef Battalion, purchasing steak dinners for troops returning home.

The All American Beef Battalion, based in Ashland, Kan., has supplied steak dinners for servicemen and women and their families since 2008. The group consists of ranchers and other members of the cattle industry.

The calf sale is a major contributor to the group’s budget. Last year’s sale raised $27,000.
