Ranchers Day - Frederick Drummond

Today we’re rolling the windows down and taking in the open plains! Our rancher’s help keep our communities going and today we’re going to celebrate them! Today’s theme is inspired by Oklahoma Hall of Fame Member Frederick Drummond. His hometown is Pawhuska, Oklahoma. Drummond comes from a long line of ranchers that have called Oklahoma home since the 1860s! After attending college and time in the Army, Drummond took over the family ranch in Osage County and took an interest in oil production. Drummond is known throughout the nation for his cattle production and served as a director for the National Cattlemen's Association. In addition to ranching, Drummond also dedicates his time to serving his Oklahoma communities. You can learn more by reading Frederick Drummond’s Oklahoma Hall of Fame biography.

Do you know any ranchers? We have lots here in Oklahoma! Dan Dillingham was in insurance, but also dedicated his time to ranching. Henry C. Hitch, Jr. was also a rancher! Ranching has been part of the Oklahoma story from the beginning and we’re proud to share these stories!


Movie Time! Sometimes we wish animals could talk and tell us what they’re thinking, do you? In Barnyard all of the animals can do just that! You can rent and stream it now. You can also watch this fun video and learn more about ranches!


Storytime! We love story time and what’s better than a story about a cow? That’s why we love Levi’s Lost Calf! You can also hear the author read the story aloud. This fun resource has facts and images about ranches (some of the pictures are even from Oklahoma!).


Arts & Crafts! Do you love cows like we do? Well this craft helps you look like a cow after making this fun cow headband! You can also make a cow out of a paper plate! Send us a picture of your herd at info@oklahomahof.com!


Make & Eat it! Want to know a fun fact about Frederick Drummond? He is related to Oklahoma Hall of Fame Member Ree Drummond, the Pioneer Woman! We’re going to get our recipe from her today and she knows all about what cows like: grass! Now we don’t eat grass, but we eat vegetables and salads, which we think is close enough. We’re not sure that cows would like this veggie casserole, but we think it looks awesome!

Listen to it! We think music would help long days on the ranch! Try this great playlist from Spotify.

Keep learning more of Oklahoma’s Story! We hope that you have a fun time at home learning about our Oklahoma ranchers! As always, there’s more to this Oklahoma story, come back tomorrow and we’ll have more for you to explore! Please post pictures of your Rancher’s Day and share them with us: #ohofathome
