Sec. Arthur Hopes to Show Oklahoma Youth That Ag Jobs Include More Than Vets and Farmers
Oklahoma’s Secretary of Agriculture Blayne Arthur created the Oklahoma Agriculture Youth Council for students heading into their senior year who have any interest in agriculture. Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays talked to Sec. Arthur about her new concept intended to increase agricultural leaders in Oklahoma.


Her initiative hopes to erase the old idea that only veterinarians and farmers were involved in agriculture, opening up kids’ minds to the many avenues of work they could pursue within the ag industry. It’s also a way to get feedback from the more tech-minded generation


“We see it as a resource for the agency. We can get their perspective on how we do our job. How we implement regulations, how we interact with producers. Can we do things better,” said Arthur.


Applications as well as an overview of the council’s year-long term are available on the homepage of the ODAFF website: www.ag.ok.gov. Applications are due April 1.
