The Bains of Pittsburg County Win Excellence in Ag Honors from Oklahoma Farm Bureau's YF&R

Sun, 16 Nov 2014 04:53:43 CST

The Bains of Pittsburg County Win Excellence in Ag Honors from Oklahoma Farm Bureau's YF&R J.T. and Sara Bain were named the winners of Oklahoma Farm Bureau's Young Farmers and Ranchers Excellence in Agriculture Award on Nov. 14 at OKFB's 73rd Annual Convention in Tulsa.

The award recognizes successful young adults ages 35 years or younger who are involved in farming but whose primary occupations are not farming or owning an agricultural business. Winners are chosen based on their involvement in agriculture and participation in Oklahoma Farm Bureau and other community organizations.

"I'm just very proud that we can be recognized for this award," Sara said. "It shows our accomplishments and I hope it also helps other people who are in our situation to go out and be active in Farm Bureau and Young Farmers and Ranchers. That's what it's really about."

J.T. and Sara are the owners and operators of Anchor B Cattle, where they currently have a 300 head cow/calf operation and also manage a stocker cattle operation. J.T. is a farm loan manager for the Farm Service Agency in Pittsburg, McIntosh, Latimer and Atoka counties and Sara is responsible for the day-to-day management of the ranch. The couple has three daughters.

The couple received a four-wheeler ATV, courtesy of Farm Credit of Western Oklahoma, Chisholm Trail Farm Credit and Farm Credit of East Central Oklahoma and an expense-paid trip to the American Farm Bureau Federation Annual Meeting Jan. 11-14 in San Diego.

The couple will compete for the National YF&R Excellence in Agriculture Award during the AFBF Annual Meeting.
