Oklahoma Farm Bureau’s Noble County Young Farmers and Ranchers committee is the 2014 recipient of the Charles L. Roff Award. The award was presented in Tulsa at the OKFB 73rd Annual Meeting Nov. 14.
The Charles L. Roff Award encourages county YF&R groups to improve their local committees and activity participation while strengthening the Farm Bureau organization.
Noble County YF&R’s highlight activities for the year included a membership drive, which focused on recruiting new YF&R members, and a Farmhand Olympics, which helped to engage high school students in Oklahoma Farm Bureau.
Dustin Ratliff, Noble County YF&R chair, hopes winning this award will bring attention to the work of Noble County YF&R.
“Hopefully, our membership in Noble County will increase and we will be more active on a county level,” Ratliff said. “It is just phenomenal to win.”
Noble County YF&R received a traveling plaque in recognition for their outstanding committee involvement.
