With an emphasis on statewide cooperation, voting delegates at the 2015 AFR convention passed comprehensive policy statements on a wide range of issues. We are highlighting some of the areas of emphasis in 2016.
The 2015 American Farmers & Ranchers Southeast District speech contest was held Nov. 12 in Wilburton, Okla.

The 2015 American Farmers & Ranchers Northwest District speech contest was held Nov. 5 at the Gene Autry Technical Center, Enid, Okla.
AFR will have a booth at the Tulsa State Fair, October 1st - 11th. We will be located in the Exchange Center, booth 57. We will also be sponsoring the Commerical Cattle Grading Contest on October 6th, and the Junior Livestock Auction on October 8th.
Join us as we tour Oklahoma landmarks such as the Holy City, Meers Store, Jenks Aquarium, Little Sahara, and Beaver's Bend.
Brainstorm with peers about what activities you would like to see from the program and enjoy a great time networking as we build the LEAD program. A steak lunch/dinner will be provided by Farm Credit of East Central Oklahoma.
Join LEAD as we learn how to Advocate for Ag Oct. 10 in Tulsa. We will be having an interactive media training session learning about the importance of social media and agriculture and how to better communicate with our non-ag friends on issues!
We like to have fun and socialize while we learn valuable information about how to better help our communities and grow our businesses. In August the Women's Cooperative did all of these things during the 2015 AFR Women's Conference "Paint Your Path."
This popular event is held in the fall of each year and is available to members and non-members.
