Oklahoma Loses Long-Time Agricultural Leader
The Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food, and Forestry issued the following statement on the death of Bartlesville rancher John Hughes:

It is with tremendous sadness that the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food, and Forestry recognizes the passing of one of Oklahoma's greatest agriculture producers, Mr. John Hughes.

Mr. Hughes has been recognized as a leader in Oklahoma agriculture over his lifetime, contributing to his community and the agriculture industry in a variety of ways. Hughes was most recently inducted into the Agriculture Hall of Fame by Governor Mary Fallin.

"John Hughes was a legend in Oklahoma agriculture and his contributions to our state and the industry will continue to live on and benefit many generations into the future," said Secretary of Agriculture, Jim Reese.

John Hughes was revered by his peers as a tremendous cattleman and visionary. He served as a leader in beef production practices and brush control and opened his doors to serve as a classroom for future generations. He was a graduate of Oklahoma State University and guided many students to understand and appreciate the need for sustainable agriculture as well as the obligation to be a leader in their community.

We extend condolences to the Hughes family and the agriculture community on the loss of a tremendous individual. Services are yet to be announced.

Hughes spoke with Radio Oklahoma Network's Ron Hays upon his induction into the Oklahoma Agriculture Hall of Fame earlier this year. Click here to listen to that interview.
