Support Oklahoma Farmers, vote YES on State Question 777

Oklahoma's farmers and ranchers are energized and excited about the Right To Farm amendment. If passed, Oklahoma will join a growing list of states, including Missouri and North Dakota, that are taking steps to protect the hard working families that grow our food and our economy. However, we know people have questions about what a Right To Farm amendment will do, and why it's needed.
