AFR Raises Eight Thousand Dollars in Support of a Yes on State Question 777 Vote

Mon, 11 Jul 2016 20:00:31 CDT

AFR Raises Eight Thousand Dollars in Support of a Yes on State Question 777 Vote The American Farmers & Ranchers and their young adult LEAD program hosted a golf tournament Monday- designed to support a yes vote for State Question 777. By the end of the day, a total of 79 golfers participated- and $8,458 was raised to support a Yes on 777 vote. The State President of the AFR, Terry Detrick, was excited about the support- and said AFR is pleased to be one of several Oklahoma ag groups raising money in order to go after that yes vote in the November general election. However, he told Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays that more money is needed for the campaign that is still ahead.

Detrick and other Ag Leaders have been speaking to a variety of groups that don't have a direct tie to farming and ranching in the state- and the wheat farmer from north central Oklahoma says that once he is able to correct some of the misconceptions being advanced by those who oppose the State Question- most people he has talked to see the reason for a yes vote.

Detrick reminds anyone that is interested in getting more information about the need for 777 to go to the official website for Right to Farm by clicking here.
