More than 50 Oklahoma Farm Bureau Young Farmers and Ranchers gathered in Oklahoma City for the YF&R Summer Conference July 28-30.
Farm Bureau members ages 18-35 toured local agricultural facilities, competed in a discussion meet and networked with fellow farmers and ranchers during the three-day event.
Kelsey and Morgan Pfeiffer of Pfeiffer Farms shared their unique goat operation on the first stop of the tour. Pfeiffer Angus Farms – John and Gaye Pfeiffer – shared the importance of members’ involvement in the organization.
Members had the opportunity to visit Beck’s Farm Equipment and Lazy E Arena in Guthrie before an evening of fun at Top Golf.
YF&R Chair Alisen Anderson shared a devotion Sunday morning. Four members competed in the discussion meet – a committee-style discussion –to improve their ability to offer constructive input, cooperation and communication while analyzing agricultural problems and developing solutions.
Okmulgee County Farm Bureau member Leslie Lewis was named the winner after two rounds. She awarded her prizes at the OKFB Convention November 11 and will compete at the 2024 American Farm Bureau Convention in Salt Lake City, Utah.
