Oklahoma Farm Bureau names 2013 Champion Award recipients

Fifteen of the state’s top agricultural advocates—including Gov. Mary Fallin—will receive the Oklahoma Farm Bureau 2013 Champion Award during the OKFB Leadership Conference, Feb. 17 to 18, at the Skirvin Hotel in downtown Oklahoma City. The Oklahoma Farm Bureau board of directors is recognizing the state leaders and legislators for going above and beyond to protect and improve agriculture and rural Oklahoma during the 2013 legislative session.

“As the state’s largest agricultural organization, we are committed to preserving the livelihood and legacy of our fellow farmers and ranchers,” OKFB President Tom Buchanan said. “It is an honor to distinguish these state leaders who share our vision and who continue to help make positive strides for Oklahoma agriculture.”

In addition to Fallin, the following legislators will be recognized: Sen. Mike Schulz, Altus; Sen. John Sparks, Norman; Sen. Eddie Fields, Wynona; Sen. Bryce Marlatt, Woodward; Sen. Kim David, Porter; Sen. Larry Boggs, Wilburton; Sen. Kyle Loveless, Oklahoma City; Speaker T.W. Shannon, Lawton; Rep. Mike Jackson, Enid; Rep. Dale DeWitt, Braman; Rep. Don Armes, Faxon; Rep. Jerry Shoemake, Morris; Rep. Steve Martin, Bartlesville; and Rep. Skye McNiel, Bristow.

Nominations for the awards were received from county Farm Bureau boards and the OKFB board of directors.
