Oklahoma Stockyards remain open for business


The historic Oklahoma National Stockyards in Oklahoma City, Okla., remain open for business and will continue to receive and market cattle as usual and will not be affected by the recent cease and desist orders issued to Murphy Products, said Oklahoma Secretary of Agriculture, Terry Peach.

"Some cattle producers said they were not sure if they can still take cattle to the stockyards and we want to make it clear that the Oklahoma City cattle market is not affected by this issue in any way," Peach said. "EPA only named the stockyards in their order because the company owned the land where the compost facility is located."

The Oklahoma National Stockyards are not even included in the cease and desist orders issued by the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food and Forestry against Murphy Products, he said.
