The Oklahoma Farming and Ranching Foundation is proud to recognize Jackson County Farm Bureau as a Silver Level donor.
Jackson County Farm Bureau has been serving the interests of farmers and farm families since its inception on December 10, 1959. Farm Bureau is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting, protecting and representing the interests of farmers and ranchers in Oklahoma. It is the largest farm organization in the state and serves as the voice of agricultural producers at all levels.
“It is important for us, as farmers and ranchers, to help educate consumers on how our food is produced.” Said Bob Howard, Jackson county beef and wheat producer, and President of the Jackson County Farm Bureau Board of Directors. “We have to do everything we can to protect our access to scientifically-proven technology and production practices, like genetic modification of seeds, so we can continue to provide consumers with safe and affordable choices grown right here in Oklahoma.”
Other members of the Jackson County Farm Bureau Board of Directors are: Tom Buchanan, Vice President; Brad Moreau, Secretary; Keeff Felty, Treasurer; Matt Muller, Director; T.J. Beach, Director; and Martin Caldwell, Director.
“We are so thankful for the members of Jackson County Farm Bureau who have devoted their lives to producing food and fiber for our state and our nation. It is encouraging for them to see the importance of our programs and to choose to commit their resources to us.” said Amanda Rosholt, Director of Fundraising and Public Relations for the Oklahoma Farming and Ranching Foundation. “It is our mission to use those resources to educate consumers across the state on the importance of production agriculture and its impact on everyday life.”
As a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit, the Oklahoma Farming and Ranching Foundation is committed to enhancing awareness and understanding of agriculture’s importance to the state. Through educational and social programs for citizens of all ages, the Foundation aims to help Oklahomans understand the positive impact agriculture has on the state, and the importance of protecting it for future generations.
