OKLAHOMA CITY — The Oklahoma Farm Bureau Women’s Leadership Committee recently named its nine District Farm and Ranch Family Recognition recipients. The program honors a farm and ranch family in each of OKFB’s nine districts who upholds the best traditions of agriculture and rural Oklahoma as they raise food and fiber for our state and beyond.
“Farm and ranch families are the very backbone of Oklahoma agriculture and our state’s rural communities as a whole,” said Mignon Bolay, OKFB WLC Chair. “The OKFB Women’s Leadership Committee is proud to honor these nine families who exemplify the very best of our industry as they work to feed, clothe and fuel our nation and world.”
As part of their recognition, the family received a cash award along with a custom sign to hang at their farm gate.
