AFR Once Again a Diamond Level Sponsor of Oklahoma FFA Convention

American Farmers & Ranchers continued their legacy of strong support for the Oklahoma FFA this year as a Diamond level title sponsor of the Oklahoma FFA convention

We are strong supporters of our state’s youth. We believe FFA programs play a major role in the success of our young leaders.

Terry Detrick, AFR President

AFR’s strong support of the state’s largest agriculture youth organization fits well with that group’s mission statement:  “FFA makes a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.”

As you can tell from these photos, AFR indeed played a significant role at this year’s Oklahoma FFA convention at the Cox Center in Oklahoma City.
