OKFB WLC honor Nine Farm and Ranch FamiliesTue, 17 Nov 2020 11:42:31 CST
The Oklahoma Farm Bureau Women’s Leadership Committee recently named its District Farm and Ranch Family Recognition recipients, honoring a family in each of OKFB’s nine districts who upholds the best traditions of agriculture and rural Oklahoma.
“Farm and ranch families are the very backbone of Oklahoma agriculture and our state’s rural communities as a whole,” said Mignon Bolay, OKFB WLC chair. “The OKFB Women’s Leadership Committee is proud to honor these nine families who exemplify the very best of our industry as they work to feed, clothe and fuel our nation and world.”
The nine farm and ranch families include Bernie and Dixie Smith, Beaver County, District One; Robert and Kylie Peeler, Greer County, District Two; Jonny and Mary Ellison, Canadian County, District Three; Kenneth and Jane Lake, Carter County, District Four; Mark and Sherri O’Hern, Atoka County, District Five; Kent and Diana Barnes, Cherokee County, District Six; Chad and Danielle Budy, Woods County, District Seven; L.C. and Jaclyn Darling, Coal County, District Eight; and James and Sharon Pittman, Okmulgee County, District Nine.
Awards are typically presented during the organization’s annual meeting, but OKFB opted to conduct a virtual business meeting this year to protect members’ health and safety. Award winners will be highlighted throughout the month of November on OKFB’s website and social media platforms.
As part of their recognition, the family received a cash award along with a custom sign to hang at their farm gate. Find full feature stories and photos for each family at okfarmbureau.org/farmfamily2020.
