Oklahoma Farm Bureau helped educate voters in Norman about State Question 777, the Right to Farm amendment, at the organization’s “Get on Tap with 777” event Sept. 22 at McNellie’s Abner Ale House in Norman.
If approved by Oklahoma voters on Nov. 8, SQ 777 will give Oklahoma farmers and ranchers constitutional protection. Event attendees learned how the measure will protect not only farmers and ranchers, but also consumers.
“The Right to Farm amendment gives Oklahoma farmers and ranchers the ability to continue producing the world’s safest and most affordable food supply,” said Mark Yates, OKFB public policy field representative. “We’re excited to see the support for farmers and ranchers â€¨in Norman.”
OKFB also will educate Tulsa voters at another event on Oct. 20. For more details about the event, visit the OKFB Facebook page. For more information about the bill, visit www.OklahomaRightToFarm.com.
