Governor Fallin Proclaims Farm Bureau Week

Wed, 08 Feb 2012 14:20:43 CST

Governor Fallin Proclaims Farm Bureau Week Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin has proclaimed the week of Feb. 20-24, “Farm Bureau Week” in Oklahoma.
The week is part of a statewide observance during which county Farm Bureaus will make a concerted effort to enroll members, introduce the community to Farm Bureau volunteer leaders and explain the organization’s goals and objectives.
“This is a special time to acknowledge Farm Bureau members and the work they do year-round in the communities across this great state,” said OFB President Mike Spradling. “It is significant the governor recognizes Farm Bureau and agriculture’s importance to Oklahoma.”
When making the proclamation, Fallin cited Farm Bureau’s rich heritage and history of championing rural and agricultural issues.
“We have always made the best interests of rural citizens a priority,” Spradling said. “That was true when we started in 1942, and it’s true today.”
Farm Bureau is a grass roots organization based on a county foundation; each of Oklahoma’s 77 counties maintains an organized Farm Bureau group. As a voluntary, general farm organization, it seeks to improve the income and living conditions of farm and ranch families. Farm Bureau represents the farmer and rancher at the county level, the statehouse and the nation’s Capitol.
Throughout Farm Bureau Week, county Farm Bureau groups will be hosting receptions, open houses and other events highlighting the organization’s strong rural heritage.
