OKLAHOMA CITY—American Farmers & Ranchers (AFR) Cooperative delegates are looking forward to an effective week on Capitol Hill as they participate in the 2022 National Farmers Union (NFU) Fall Legislative Fly‐In Sept. 11‐14. AFR Cooperative President Scott Blubaugh will lead the team of delegates as they meet one‐on‐ one with members of Oklahoma’s legislative delegation. The AFR efforts will be mirrored nationwide as Farmers Union members from every state organization meet with members of Congress to highlight challenges our nation’s farmers and ranchers are facing and outline priorities and goals for future legislation. In addition to congressional meetings, the Oklahoma delegation will also hear from U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) officials about current events, opportunities and other work the Agency is doing on behalf of farmers. They will also receive briefings from the leadership and staff of the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Agriculture and the Biden Administration.
