Young Farmers and Ranchers Launch 'Bushels for Book's Program

Young Farmers and Ranchers Launch 'Bushels for Book's Program
This year's crop looks to support agriculture literacy. "Bushels for Books" is a new program from the Oklahoma Farm Bureau Young Farmers and Ranchers Committee and the Oklahoma Farming and Ranching Foundation to help educate Oklahoma youth.

Farmers can donate a few bushels either by check or through local co-ops to purchase bushel baskets of accurate agricultural books to be placed in Oklahoma schools.

“The Bushels for Books program is an easy way for farmers across the state to ensure students understand the importance of agriculture,” OKFB YF&R Chairman Marty Williams said. “It is essential for students to have access to resources that accurately describe the agricultural industry so they can grow up to be the next generation of producers or informed consumers.”

Teachers will be able to apply for the books starting in August 2014. Applications are being sent to all Oklahoma schools and county Farm Bureau offices to encourage participation.

The program is open to all farmers. Donations are 100 percent tax deductible.

For questions about Bushels for Books, please contact OKFB YF&R Coordinator Holly Carroll at (405) 523-2397 or visit www.okfarmingandranchingfoundation.org to download a donation form.
