Oklahoma Cattlemen's Foundation Hosts Beef AgVocacy Seminar Thursday, Feb. 8 in Yukon, Okla.Mon, 05 Feb 2018 12:29:22 CST
The Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Foundation is hosting an AgVocacy Seminar on Thursday, Feb. 8, 2018 at Cimarron Fields Event Barn, 5120 S. Cimarron Road, Yukon, Okla. The seminar will begin at 9 a.m. and conclude by 4 p.m.
“AgVocacy is a term used to describe the act of being an advocate for agriculture,” said Tiffani Pruitt, Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Foundation Coordinator. “Agriculturalists continue to improve efficiency on farms and ranches and grow more crops and livestock with less resources. As efficiency goes up, the number of people engaged in production agriculture decreases and the agriculture education gap gets deeper and wider.”
According to Pruitt, the trio of speakers for the day are engaged agriculturalists genuinely concerned about agriculture literacy, or the public’s knowledge of Agriculture. “You’ll be entertained, enlightened and leave with a bank of ideas to help bridge the ever-growing ag literacy gap,” said Pruitt.
