More than 130 American Farmers & Ranchers/Oklahoma Farmers Union (AFR/OFU) 2015 Leadership Summit attendees once again teamed up with Kids Against Hunger to help fight hunger in the United States and abroad. Kids Against Hunger is a humanitarian food-aid organization with a mission to significantly reduce the number of hungry children in the U.S. and to feed starving children throughout the world.
American Farmers & Ranchers/Oklahoma Farmers Union (AFR/OFU) hosted its 2015 Leadership Summit July 26 – August 1. More than 160 students participated in leadership development activities that will benefit them far into the future.
This year marks the second year for the summit to be held at Big Cedars Camp near Wanette, Okla. The central location has made the AFR/OFU Leadership Summit equally accessible to both sides of Oklahoma.
American Farmers & Ranchers announced its 2015-2016 Youth Advisory Council at the organization’s annual Senior Leadership Summit Reception July 30, 2015.
The Council consists of high school juniors and seniors representing AFR youth from across the state. Members of the 2015-2016 Council are Madi Baughman, Lone Grove; Grant Wilber, Cherokee; Ashley Tucker, Fairview; Macee Hammack, Leedey; and Guess Leonard, Claremore.
AFR is now allowing single-wide manufactured homes built in 1995 or later to be written as the primary dwelling on Farm & Ranch policies.
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.
