What a year it has been.
It has been a year of the unexpected, a year of the unknown and a year of events that none of us ever thought we would see in our lifetimes.
And yet here Farm Bureau members are: still planting, still harvesting, still working, still striving, still ranching, still farming.
In the midst of uncertainty and unease, Oklahoma’s farm and ranch families have risen to the occasion to continue the generations-long tradition of growing crops, caring for animals, tending to the land and producing safe and abundant food. This peace of mind and security is a foundation on which our nation is built: that we have the means and the ability to meet the needs of our people.
This year, Oklahoma Farm Bureau members have risen to the occasion not only to continue farming and ranching, but as members of rural communities they have also worked to ensure we make it through today while planning for tomorrow.
As an organization, OKFB has continued its work to support our agricultural families and rural communities. The importance of working together as one voice is as evident as ever.
While Farm Bureau members may not be gathering at our traditional in-person annual meeting, we are excited to have the opportunity to conduct our organization’s business in a safe and responsible way.
Our online business meeting on Thursday, November 5 will be streamed online for Farm Bureau members to view. Additionally, nine district gatherings will allow Farm Bureau members who prefer to join with others in a safe and healthy way the opportunity to view our business meeting together.
This may not be the meeting we had all hoped for, but it is yet another way our community is rising to the occasion to get through these times as we press on toward better times.
We hope you can join us November 5 to celebrate a year of agriculture, a year of Farm Bureau and a year of rising to the occasion, no matter the occasion.
