Oklahoma Voting on the 'Right to Farm Bill'
USAgNet - 11/08/2016

Oklahoma Farm Bureau Young Farmers & Ranchers has officially announced its support for State Question 777, Oklahoma's Right to Farm. The group said the proposed amendment to the Oklahoma Constitution would protect farming and ranching practices for Oklahoma farmers and ranchers, both large and small.

"SQ 777 will decide the course of agriculture for future Oklahomans," said Josh Emerson, YF&R State Chairman. "As the state's younger generation of farmers and ranchers, we believe these decisions should be made by the agriculturalists of the state, not out-of-state special interest groups. We support Right to Farm and encourage our members and fellow Oklahomans to vote yes on SQ 777 this November."

For Farm Bureau members ages 18 to 35, YF&R provides leadership development, works to preserve individual freedoms and to expand agricultural opportunities. Through competitive events, agriculture advocacy training and more, YF&R aims to grow its members both professionally and personally, demonstrating a vested interest in the future of Oklahoma's farmers, ranchers and agriculture.

The Oklahoma Farm Bureau YF&R program provides an opportunity for young farmers and ranchers to connect with fellow passionate individuals with the same professional challenges.
