Nocona Cook Confirmed as the Next State Board of Agriculture Member

Wed, 05 May 2021 09:42:17 CDT

Nocona Cook Confirmed as the  Next State Board of Agriculture Member Governor Kevin Stitt has appointed and the Oklahoma Senate has confirmed Nocona Cook, from Cordell, as the newest member of the State Board of Agriculture.

Cook, representing the Southwest district, is no stranger to supporting Oklahoma agriculture. As a fifth-generation farmer in his family and the owner of Cook Farms near Cloud Chief, OK, he raises wheat, alfalfa and cotton- all in addition to his commercial cow-calf operation and custom swathing and hay-baling business.

“There is no doubt Nocona Cook brings extensive knowledge and experience to the State Board of Agriculture,” said Blayne Arthur, Oklahoma Secretary of Agriculture. “I am eager to see the impact he makes on the industry through his service in this capacity and I am confident his background will enhance Oklahoma agriculture.”

In 2007, Cook married his wife Jordan - also a seasoned agriculturist. They have two sons, Denton and Baylor. In addition to their own operation, the Cook’s and Jordan’s family have a registered angus cattle operation where they raise and sell registered Angus bulls for their annual production sale each March.

Cook has held many leadership roles including serving on the Washita County Farm Bureau Board, the Oklahoma Farm Bureau Young Farmers and Ranchers Committee, Washita County Cattlemen’s Board and the Cordell School Board. He is also the president of the Washita County Fire Association and the Fire Chief/EMT for the Cloud Chief Fire Dept.

Cook will succeed Karen Dodson, Hydro, who has been a member of the board since 2013.
