The latest issue of Oklahoma Country, Oklahoma Farm Bureau’s quarterly magazine, arrived in mailboxes last week and is now available for viewing online.
The Spring 2018 issue features two Oklahoma farmers – Cody Goodknight of Chattanooga and Joe Mayer of Guymon – who share the importance of Oklahoma’s agriculture sales tax exemption and its impact on today’s farm economy. The issue also features Tulsa County farmer Chad Selman, who is continuing a family legacy in the pecan business.
The magazine also includes organizational updates from OKFB’s new Executive Director Thad Doye and OKFB President Rodd Moesel, details on a new member benefit from John Deere, a look at how the 2018 farm bill impacts all Americans, a new fundraising opportunity for the Oklahoma Farming and Ranching Foundation, and much, much more.
