Farm Credit Associations of Oklahoma Host Centennial Celebration
   

The Farm Credit Associations of Oklahoma recently held a centennial celebration in honor of Farm Credit’s 100 years of service to rural America.

The event was held May 11th at the Oklahoma State Capitol in Oklahoma City and drew over 70 legislators, numerous agricultural business representatives, Farm Credit employees and board members from across the state.

A reception was held on the 4th floor rotunda of the Oklahoma State Capitol building followed by the reading of two resolutions, one on the floor of the House of Representatives and one of the floor of the Senate, recognizing Farm Credit for 100 years of service to the agricultural industry and the economic boost Farm Credit provides to the state’s economy.

An official resolution was introduced on the House floor by Speaker of the House Jeff Hickman and State Representative Scott Biggs that commended Farm Credit for its 100 years of support and service to the agricultural community in Oklahoma as well as nationwide. A portion of Representative Biggs’ comments praised Farm Credit for their role specifically in supporting young people involved in agriculture, through 4-H and FFA sponsorships and young farmer and rancher programs.

The official resolution introduced on the Senate floor was done so by State Senator Ron Justice and highlighted Farm Credit’s cooperative, borrower-owned structure as well as its impact on the future of agriculture.

Representatives from Farm Credit of Western Oklahoma, Farm Credit of Enid, AgPreference, Oklahoma Ag Credit and American Ag Credit were present as well as CoBank directors, Dan Childs and Clint Roush.

The Farm Credit Associations of Oklahoma are proud to participate in the 100 year celebration taking place nationwide that honors local Farm Credit offices throughout the country for their part in supporting farmers and ranchers for the better part of a century.
