County Farm Bureau Board Members to Enhance Leadership Skills During Annual Meeting
County Farm Bureau board members are invited to hone their leadership skills during the County Board Member Training during the Oklahoma Farm Bureau Annual Meeting at 10 a.m. Friday, Nov. 5.

New to the annual meeting this year, the training will highlight the roles and responsibilities of the organizations’ county leaders while further developing their leadership skills.

County board members who have been serving for decades or those who have recently been elected to serve will have the opportunity to learn about preparing for meetings, maintaining records of the organization, serving all Farm Bureau members and much more.

Lunch will be provided to all attendees.

Rural Oklahoma is full of some of the greatest success stories throughout the entire state and is the main reason Oklahoma is on track to become a top 10 state. 

The Road to Rural Prosperity will dive into these stories each week, bringing you insight into the great things happening in and to rural Oklahoma. We will bring you stories covering rural life, agriculture, energy, healthcare, tourism, and politics affecting rural America. 

The Road to Rural Prosperity is here to tell stories about rural America, for rural America.

As we continue along the Road to Rural Prosperity- In our latest Ag Perspective Podcast, KC Sheperd talks with the leading animal behavior authority in the world, Dr. Temple Grandin. KC and Dr. Grandin talk about the concept of Sustainability and the proper handling of beef cattle, how to treat your cattle the right way, the concept of Stockmanship, how to get an animal ready for the show ring and the amazing memory that cattle have- and how understanding that memory can help you lessen the stress on your cattle and yourself as you work with beef or dairy animals.

Dr. Grandin has been honored by Universities and Organizations around the world- including in 2010 when Oklahoma State University created an endowed professorship in animal behavior in honor of Temple Grandin.
