House Recognizes Ag Day

OKLAHOMA CITY – The Oklahoma House of Representatives unanimously approved a resolution declaring Thursday, March 24, 2022, as Oklahoma Agriculture Day.

House Resolution 1046 was authored by House Agriculture and Rural Development Committee Chair Rep. Dell Kerbs, R-Shawnee. The resolution was adopted by unanimous consent.

“Our world cannot operate without this vital industry, which we saw firsthand after the significant shortages in the food supply chain during the COVID-19 pandemic,” Kerbs said. “Agriculture provides jobs for thousands of people and food for millions more, and I’m glad to carry this resolution to recognize its valuable impact.”

The resolution affirms that agriculture is one of Oklahoma’s leading industries and its associated production, processing and marketing segments together provide a major source of employment for the state’s workforce. It also states that the performance of the agriculture economy is vital to maintaining the strength of Oklahoma’s economy, the standard of living for Oklahomas and the state’s presence in world trade markets
