Oklahoma Farm Report
About 750 Young Farmers and Ranchers from around the United States are gathering this weekend in Tulsa for the American Farm Bureau Federation's Young Farmer and Rancher Leadership Conference. One of the members of the national committee that guides this program this year is Troy Hadrick of South Dakota, and you might remember that Hadrick is one of those leading the outrage against Yellowtail Wine for their decision to make a corporate gift of $100,000 to HSUS. To refresh your memory about the YouTube Video that Troy produced to show his displeasure with Yellowtail, click here.
We talked with Hadrick about his efforts in the Yellowfail campaign via Youtube, Twitter and Facebook- and also talked about why he is convinced that HSUS means him economic harm, as he contends they want to put him and other ranchers across the United States out of business with their vegan based agenda. One earlier story on the Yellowtail controversy that we did here on our website sums up the issue pretty well- click here to jump back to that earlier report.
Hadrick is our guest for a special long form version of the Beef Buzz here on the OklahomaFarmReport.Com. We talked with Troy on Thursday evening at the Flying G ranch, owned by Mike and Lotsee Spradling of Tulsa county as they hosted the Oklahoma YF&R Committee as well as the National YF&R Committee in a prelude to the national conference this weekend.
The Beef Buzz is a regular feature heard on radio stations around the state on the Radio Oklahoma Network- but is also a regular audio feature found on this website as well.
