OKLAHOMACITY – The first episode of a new docuseries entitled “Cattle Calling” shares the story of Kinzie Burtrum Borgerding and the Burtrum family of Burtrum Cattle, LLC in Stillwater, as they work to ensure their ranch and their family thrives despite a complex and changing landscape.
The recently released episode, which highlights the people who raise cattle and sheds light on their way of life, is available to view at www.CattleCalling. org.
“As a rancher, our connection to the land, our heritage and our family run deep so we were honored to be a part of this effort to share the story of ranching and raising beef in Oklahoma,” said Clay Burtrum.
The new docuseries, produced by the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, a contractor to the Beef Checkoff, invites consumers to step into the world of modern-day cattle ranchers as they navigate the trials and tribulations to continue the lineage of the American beef producer.
The film provides consumers with an in-depth look at the cattle farming and ranching industry and encourages them to follow along to see how this Oklahoma family adapts to care for the land and the cattle and ensure their operation can continue.
“My dad has been a source of inspiration for me since I was a little girl, so the opportunity to be a part of this with him was very meaningful,” said Kinzie Burtrum Borgerding.
“Cattle Calling” continues the Beef Checkoff’s ongoing emphasis on connecting with consumers and sharing the stories of beef producers. The video project aims to connect consumers with the cattlemen and women who are working to ensure they are adopting tools and technologies that help beef farmers and ranchers become more sustainable over time.
