Sen. Jim Inhofe was recognized with the Distinguished Service to Oklahoma Farm Bureau Award on Saturday, Nov. 12 during the organization’s 81st annual meeting in Norman.
The award honors individuals who have made outstanding contributions to agriculture and the Farm Bureau organization.
Inhofe earned the award for his dedication to agriculture and rural Oklahoma throughout his nearly three decades in the U.S. Senate and more than 50 years in public office.
“Sen. Jim Inhofe has been a steadfast partner to Farm Bureau members and a strong supporter of agriculture during his time in public office,” said Rodd Moesel, OKFB president. “He will leave enormous shoes to fill when he retires from the U.S. Senate at the end of the year, and OKFB members sincerely thank him for his tireless work to protect and preserve agriculture and our rural way of life.”
The Oklahoma Farm Bureau annual meeting is the organization’s largest gathering of farmers and ranchers every year. At the event, members vote on grassroots policy, elect leaders and award outstanding individuals. OKFB has a presence in all 77 Oklahoma counties and serves as the voice of agriculture and the rural way of life. To learn more, visit okfarmbureau.org.
