MODA Mission:  To promote the use of oxen to our American youth as well as to those in foreign lands, so that all may be shown their diversity and skills, even in this modern world. We do this to keep our American heritage alive and to educate those who can benefit from our experiences.​



Held each year on the weekend after Father's Day at Tillers International in Scotts, MI, MODA's annual Gathering started as a reunion of sorts for one of Tillers Oxen Basics classes, but has grown into a special event where first time visitors are welcomed, drovers and teams can participate in work and friends old and new can enjoy oxen and working cattle.
Please check back for the final schedule.  Events maybe rescheduled, moved, or canceled due to weather or events outside of our control.
