More than 50 Oklahoma Farm Bureau members traveled to east-central Oklahoma during the 2022 OKFB Ag Tour May 4-6.
Members from across the state had the opportunity to learn about production agriculture at Crow Farm Markets, a vegetable and fruit producer near Shawnee; Leaning Oak Ranch, a commercial beef herd near Okemah; Watson Farms Meat Processing, a state inspected and custom meat processor near Council Hill; Livesay Orchard, a peach, watermelon, and apple producer near Porter; and P&C Cattle Pens, a cattle pen manufacturer near Stillwell.
Tour stops also included G&H Decoy, the oldest decoy manufacturer in America located in Henryetta; and Hunter’s Home, Oklahoma’s only remaining plantation home dating to 1845 in Park Hill.
The first-ever OKFB cattle handling safety program was presented to Ag Tour participants to remind the seasoned cattle producers proper handling and safety procedures on the ranch. The program will be available for all county Farm Bureaus at a later date.
Meals for the three-day tour were sponsored by Adair County Farm Bureau, Cherokee County Farm Bureau, Muskogee County Farm Bureau, Rogers County Farm Bureau and Wagoner County Farm Bureau.
