One of the awards handed out on Conservation Day at the Oklahoma State Capitol on Monday was presented by the State Conservationist from the USDA's Natural Resource and Conservation Service, Gary O'Neill. O'Neill presented Radio Oklaoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays with an award on behalf of the Oklahoma Conservation Community that recognized Hays for his years of creating awareness about the state and federal conservation programs that have helped Oklahoma's farmers and ranchers preserve and protect the natural resources of the state.
Tom Lucas, Information Officer for the Oklahoma NRCS, read the wording on the plaque presented to Hays in the State Senate Chamber. It reads "In appreciation of your years of service to Oklahoma in reporting agricultural news and for your countless hours of time and effort devoted to attending and covering rural events all across the state of Oklahoma, and in recognition of your support for placing conservation on the land and for your efforts in creating awareness about state and federal conservation programs, and for your leadership in making rural Oklahoma a better place to life. You have become the "Voice of Oklahoma Agriculture."
