As county Farm Bureaus across the state celebrate the grassroots agriculture organization next week, Gov. Mary Fallin has proclaimed Feb. 19 through Feb. 23 “Oklahoma Farm Bureau Week” in Oklahoma.
In her proclamation, Fallin praised Farm Bureau for its dedication to agriculture, the base for Oklahoma’s economic prosperity.
“Farm Bureau has maintained a rich legacy of protecting farmers, ranchers and rural Oklahomans over the past 75 years,” said Rodd Moesel, OKFB president. “We’re proud to share our efforts to bolster the agriculture industry with our friends, neighbors and communities this week and throughout the year.”
Observed annually, the week provides county Farm Bureaus an opportunity to promote the organization in communities throughout Oklahoma.
In honor of Farm Bureau Week, many county Farm Bureaus throughout Oklahoma will host events within local communities. To find a list of county events, visit the OKFB website.
