Fairview couple wins YF&R Achievement award
Adam and Nicole Martens of Major County are the 2012 recipients of Oklahoma Farm Bureau’s Young Farmers and Ranchers Achievement award. They were recognized as OFB’s top YF&R farming and ranching couple at the organization’s 71st Annual Convention Nov. 10, in Oklahoma City.
As Achievement winners, the Martens family received a new WW Livestock Systems squeeze chute and an all-expense-paid trip to the American Farm Bureau Federation’s Annual Convention next January in Nashville, Tenn.
Adam and Nicole farm nearly 750 acres of wheat near Fairview. They also manage a 70-head cow/calf operation and run 160 stocker cattle. They are graduates of Oklahoma State University and have two children: Sydney, 8 and Reed, 6.
The Martens couple has been involved in Farm Bureau since 2005. Adam currently serves as the Major County Farm Bureau YF&R chairman and a member of the county resolutions committee, and the couple served as YF&R State Committee chairs in 2011.
