AFR Honors State Senator Eddie Fields with Ag Advocacy Award at 2018 Convention

Mon, 19 Feb 2018 06:38:42 CST

AFR Honors State Senator Eddie Fields with Ag Advocacy Award at 2018 Convention When he is not working on his Wynona, Okla., ranch, Eddie Fields is representing Senate District 10 in the Oklahoma Legislature. It’s not easy running a successful ranching business while spending almost half of the time 130 miles away at the state Capitol, but Fields has a strong sense of serving others.

His call to public duty was a significant factor in his selection as an AFR Ag Advocacy award winner.

“Sen. Fields unwavering compassion for public service and his strong dedication to agriculture make him a great candidate for our Ag Advocacy award,” said Terry Detrick, AFR president.

Fields is a third-generation rancher, continuing the Fields Ranch legacy started by his family in Osage County in 1952. Today he gets plenty of help from his wife, Christina and three daughters, Tailor, Jacie and Tristan. A strong desire to hold public office fueled his first election to the Oklahoma House of Representatives. He crossed the aisle in 2010 to represent Kay and Osage counties in the Oklahoma Senate. His leadership has been evident, as he has served as Chairman of the Senate Agriculture and Rural Development Committee and is currently Assistant Majority Floor Leader and Vice Chairman of Appropriations, Chairman of the Appropriations Subcommittee on Natural Resources and Regulatory Services, and Chairman of Rules.

“I have just felt it necessary to step out and work for my neighbors and the citizens of Oklahoma,” Fields said.

“The coveted AFR Ag Advocacy Award is presented to deserving individuals who have demonstrated a strong record of advocating for agriculture,” Detrick said, “and Sen. Fields has definitely worked hard for the farm and ranching industry.”
