Cattlemen Association praises Biggs

Rep. Scott Biggs was the recipient of the Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Association OCA Legislative Appreciation Award during the recent 64th OCA Convention and Trade Show in Norman.

The award was established to recognize elected officials who support Oklahoma agriculture and look out for Oklahoma cattlemen and their needs. Rep. Biggs, R-Chickasha, has been a supporter of Oklahoma’s farming and ranching industry and has taken great steps to protect the hard working families that grow Oklahoma’s food and its economy, according to the OCA.

“Representative Biggs is a cattleman serving in the Legislature and he therefore knows the issues cattle producers face every day,” said Charlie Swanson, OCA President. “We sincerely appreciate his foremost clarity on his stance no matter the issue and especially his loyalty and undying support for Oklahoma agriculture and the beef industry. This has been shown time and time again through his work in getting SQ 777 ‘Right to Farm’ on the ballot in November.”

Swanson said OCA is proud to work with many legislators who defend Oklahoma’s farmers and ranchers and understand the importance of having family farms and ranches as our food and fiber producers. Biggs has championed the language of “Right to Farm” on the House floor, but also withstood personal attacks from outside interest groups who oppose the constitutional amendment.

The Right to Farm amendment will be on the November 8 ballot for state voters to decide.
