State ag department launches new blog

Oklahoma City

Providing rural Oklahomans with timely updates about agricultural programs and opportunities is a priority of the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food, and Forestry. The agency has begun a new agricultural blog to help people who have no access to a daily newspaper or who rely on the Internet for news and other information.

Secretary of Agriculture, Terry Peach, said the new Internet site will be updated regularly about programs, agricultural issues and news of events and items of interest to agriculturists and consumers.

"This is a project that will continue to evolve and grow throughout the future," he said. "I hope people will visit the site and offer suggestions for things they would like to see added or changed.

"We hope this will be a tool that supplements other news sources and provides coverage to people in locations with limited access to agricultural news," Peach said. "It is our obligation to keep our citizens as informed as possible."

Wildfire conditions, training programs, grant and loan programs and licensing announcements are a few examples of the sites beginning content. A Made in Oklahoma recipe is also posted each Wednesday.

The ODAFF blog's address is www.agblog.ok.gov and it is also linked to the agency website at www.oda.state.ok.us.
