Sun, 16 Nov 2014 05:54:50 CST

Oklahoma’s First Gentleman Wade Christensen Honored as Ag Advocate by Oklahoma Farm Bureau Oklahoma’s First Gentleman Wade Christensen was recognized with the Oklahoma Farm Bureau Agriculture Advocate Award during Oklahoma Farm Bureau’s 73rd Annual Convention on Nov. 15 in Tulsa.

The OKFB Agriculture Advocate Award honors those who have been an advocate for the agriculture industry to the general public. Specifically, Christensen has worked on promoting agriculture during his time on the National Governors Association Spouses Leadership Committee.

“Oklahoma Farm Bureau thanks First Gentleman Wade Christensen for shedding light on the important role farming and ranching families play in our nation’s economy,” said Oklahoma Farm Bureau President Tom Buchanan. “The agriculture industry is well-served and well-represented because of agriculture advocates like Mr. Christensen.”

As chairman of the NGA’s Spouses Leadership Committee, Christensen moderated a signature session on the topic of agriculture. The session – America’s Farms: Feeding and Strengthening Communities – emphasized the importance of the agricultural industry in providing a safe and affordable food source in the U.S. and the world.

Christensen learned the significance of agriculture in Oklahoma as he grew up farming and ranching on his family’s land in western Oklahoma. He was active in the FFA and was named Oklahoma’s first “Star Agribusiness Man.”
