Okeechobee County was formed in 1917 at the northern end of Lake Okeechobee in south central Florida. The name comes from Native American words meaning “big water”. The county seat is also named Okeechobee. The county has a total area of 892 square miles, of which about 14% is covered by water. As of the 2010 census, there were 39,996 residents.

Many visitors come to the area during the winter months, but agriculture, including dairy, beef, citrus, and fishing, continues to be important to the economy. The county’s dairy operations provide one-fourth of the state’s annual milk production. The Okeechobee Livestock Market is the largest volume cattle market in Florida. In addition to citrus, a growing industry, other products of the area’s farmers include vegetables, sod, ornamental plants, and exotic animals.
