Trey Caldwell Named Top Agriculturist Under 40 By Sirloin ClubFri, 14 Feb 2020 12:58:23 CST
The Sirloin Club of Oklahoma is proud to award five deserving, young agriculturalists with the Today’s Agriculturalists Under 40 award for those who excel as ag educators, crop farmers, livestock producers, as an ag professional or as an agricultural business owner.
The 2020 recipients include, Brady Sidwell, Agriculture Business; Travis Bradshaw, Agriculture Educator; State Representative Trey Caldwell, Agriculture Professional; Cody Goodknight, Crop Farmer; and Kelsey Pfeiffer, Livestock Producer.
Today we want to feature Trey Caldwell, Agriculture Professional. Caldwell says its so imporant to tell the local stories of Agriculture,
"I think the biggest thing in Ag going foward is that we have to make sure as production agriculturists, and as rural Oklahomans that we tell our story. We have to tell our story every single day, because if we don't tell our story someone from California is going to tell our story for us in their eyes, and not ours. We have to tell our story about how we are conservationists. How we want to pass the land on to the next generation. How we don't want to make our customers sick. We have to defeat so many of these narratives, and we have to be proactive, and we need to explain to people what production agriculture is, and what our way of life is."
The five recipients were recognized at the Sirloin Club of Oklahoma’s Annual Banquet and Chalice Auction on February 13, 2020 at The Springs in Edmond, Oklahoma.
The annual event brings ag industry leaders, sirloin club members, legislators and welcomed guests to celebrate the successes of the past year and fundraise to help support Oklahoma 4-H and FFA students who participate at the Oklahoma Youth Expo and in the National Land Judging Contest.
The Radio Oklahoma Ag Network talked to all five honorees and will be individually featuring each winner in the next week on the website Oklahoma Farm Report, in the Ron Hays Daily Email and on the statewide radio network.
