Is OALP Valuable? Program Grad John Pfeiffer Says Yes

Wed, 12 Feb 2014 05:55:37 CST

Is OALP Valuable? Program Grad John Pfeiffer Says Yes As Class 16 of the Oklahoma Ag Leadership Program prepares to leave for their capstone international travel experience to South Africa this week, we look back at a graduate of the program and ask what the program has done for him. John Pfeiffer of Orlando, Oklahoma was a member of Class One of the program. Farm Director Ron Hays caught up with John at the Cattle Industry Convention in Nashville this past week- and asked him about how the program changed his view of US agriculture and its place in today's world.

Pfeiffer told Hays that the program "changed the way he looked at things and that America is maybe not as all powerful as I earlier thought." He adds that it showed him that you cannot wait on others to tell your story and take care of your business- that you have to leave the farm and do it tourself.

Click on the LISTEN BAR to hear John's comments about how his time in Class One of OALP impacted his involvement in groups like the American Angus Association and Certified Angus Beef- two groups that he currently serves by being on their board of directors.

Click here for the OALP website to learn more about the program here in 2014. Applications and more information about Class 17 are available there.

We will be following Class 16 as they travel to South Africa and experience agriculture and more from this country found at the bottom of the African continent.
