Sat, 12 Nov 2016 08:56:25 CST

Isaac Fisher Selected as Oklahoma Farm Bureau Young Farmers and Ranchers Achievement Award Winner Isaac Fisher of Comanche County was named the winner of the 2016 Oklahoma Farm Bureau Young Farmers and Ranchers Achievement Award. He was recognized as OKFB’s top young farming and ranching individual at the 75th annual convention on Nov. 11 in Oklahoma City.


Fisher concentrates on raising stocker cattle and growing wheat and cotton near the southwest Oklahoma town of Chattanooga. He also runs a custom haying business swathing and baling hay for fellow farmers and ranchers in the area.


“It’s an honor to even be considered for this award,” Fisher said. “To be recognized for the Achievement Award from this organization feels really good.”


Fisher serves on the OKFB YF&R state committee, and he is active in his local YF&R committee. He has attended numerous state Farm Bureau events in addition to serving as a local volunteer firefighter.


As the Achievement Award winner, Fisher received a Kubota RTV500 courtesy of Great Plains Kubota and an expense-paid trip to Phoenix for the 2017 American Farm Bureau Federation Annual Meeting.


Fisher will compete on a national level for the AFBF Young Farmers and Ranchers Achievement Award during the AFBF Annual Meeting.


“I’m both excited and nervous about competing on the national level, but I’m looking forward to this opportunity,” Fisher said.


OKFB’s Young Farmers and Ranchers Program is open to both men and women, ages 18 to 35, who hold a membership in his or her county Farm Bureau.


The Oklahoma Farm Bureau Annual Meeting is the organization’s largest gathering of farmers and ranchers every year. At the event, members vote on grassroots policy, elect leaders and award outstanding individuals. OKFB has a presence in all 77 Oklahoma counties and serves as the voice of agriculture and the rural way of life.
