American Farmers & Ranchers Seeks Members' Input During Statewide August Meetings, Aug. 7 - 20

Wed, 25 Jul 2018 14:40:23 CDT

American Farmers & Ranchers Seeks Members' Input During Statewide August Meetings, Aug. 7 - 20 AFR members will have the opportunity to discuss key rural and agriculture issues during a series of informal barbecues scheduled for Aug. 7-20 in various locations across Oklahoma.


"We want to use this informal, relaxed atmosphere to learn the critical issues on the minds of Oklahoma farmers and ranchers," AFR President Terry Detrick, said.


The current agriculture economy, the farm bill, mid-term elections and international trade are among the issues expected to gain attention during the meetings.


"We'll talk about all of these issues," Detrick said, "and I am sure the weather will also be a frequent topic, as it is every time you get farmers and ranchers together."


Detrick added, the issues discussed will lead to new and improved policies for the state's oldest farm organization.


"The thoughts and ideas surfaced at these barbecues will be used by our members to formulate policies to be voted on at our annual convention in February," Detrick said. "These policies are important as they will guide our organization throughout the coming year."


The meetings, two each day, will start promptly with the meal followed by discussions. There will also be staff introductions followed by brief comments. The locations and starting times are:


Tuesday, Aug. 7
