An Eighty Year Success Story- Jimmy Emmons Talks OACD 80th Anniversary with Ron HaysMon, 26 Feb 2018 06:03:08 CST
A birthday party deluxe is underway this week at the Embassy Suites just south of the Oklahoma State Capitol- as the Oklahoma Association of Conservation Districts holds their 80th Anniversary Meeting. Established in 1937 in response to the dirty thirties and tons and tons of dirt blowing thru the air- the Conservation Districts established a way for landowners and government to work together in keeping the soil from blowing away- improving water quality and in more recent times- initiating the conversation about Soil Health through practices like No Till and Cover Crops.
The President of the OACD is one of the rockstars in No Till Production- Jimmy Emmons of Leedey. Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays talked with Emmons on the opening day of the meeting- and they discussed the 80th anniversary, the status of conservation work in Oklahoma and previewed a world class part of the meeting planned for Tuesday- the Regenerative Agriculture Conference.
