Oklahoma National Stockyards Under New Management, Kellie Payne Named General Manager

Wed, 24 Apr 2019 16:15:04 CDT

Oklahoma National Stockyards Under New Management, Kellie Payne Named General Manager The Board of Directors of the Oklahoma National Stockyards is pleased to announce Kelli Payne as the new General Manager effective April 24th. She will serve as only the sixth person to hold this position in their 109 year history, and the first female to be appointed to this position.



Building on the tradition of providing a great market for cattle producers while maintaining the historic integrity of the area, Payne brings over twenty years of management experience plus an extensive background in the cattle industry.



“We are excited about the energy Kelli brings to the organization. We know she has what it takes to carry on the legacy that was forged before her” stated Chris Bakwin, Chairman of the National Stockyards Company.



Payne, a fifth generation farmer and rancher from Mustang, Oklahoma, holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Animal Science, Livestock Merchandising, from Oklahoma State University. She also serves as Board Chair of Stockyards City Main Street, Ag In The Classroom Advisory Council, Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Association, Cattlemen’s Leadership Academy Class 26, Oklahoma Cattlewomen’s Association, Sirloin Club, West OKC Rotary, Stockyards Urban Design Committee, and coordinates many of the parades and events in Stockyards City.



Founded in 1910, the Oklahoma National Stockyards has a tremendous history of family owned companies. The Stockyards Company, many of the Commission firms as well as the cattle buying companies, are currently held by third, fourth or even fifth generation families. This longevity is a testament to the success and resilience of the market itself.



Rob Fisher, past President of the Oklahoma National Stockyards for almost twenty years, will serve as an advisor to Payne as the transition begins.
