Young Farmers, Ranchers get Roff Award
NORMAN The Comanche County Young Farmers and Ranchers committee was presented with the 2017 Charles L. Roff Award during Oklahoma Farm Bureau's annual meeting on Friday.
The Charles L. Roff Award encourages county Young Farmers and Ranchers groups to improve their local committees and activity participation while strengthening the Farm Bureau organization.
"It's a real honor," said John Morris, Comanche County Farm Bureau Young Farmers and Ranchers chairman. "We work really hard on communicating with area young farmers and ranchers to get us together to help improve each other's farming operations."
Comanche County Young Farmers and Ranchers hosted its annual Farmhand Olympics during the county fair. Youngsters from around the county competed in various agricultural events.
"You just see smiles on kids' faces when they come through and do the events each year," Morris said. "It's a lot of fun to watch. I think that's our biggest event."
