Agriculture Day - Terry Stuart Forst
Today is Agriculture Day This theme was inspired by recent inductee Terry Stuart Forst! She's a rancher in Waurika, Oklahoma! Forst became the general manager of her family's 7S Ranch in 1995 before taking over ownership and planning in 2001. The 7S Ranch is the oldest ranch in Oklahoma under continuous family ownership. Forst was named the first woman Cattleman of the Year in 2007 and has received several other prestigious awards. Her grandfather, RT Stuart, is also a member of the Oklahoma Hall of Fame, and owned the company that the Gaylord|Pickens Museum used to house.
Movie Time! In the farming business, dairy cows are super important. The movie Home on the Range is a really fun example of that! You can rent the movie on Disney Plus, Amazon, and google play!
Make it and Eat it! Do you know what most farm animals eat? Veggies! Veggies are just as good for us as they are for those animals. Try this twist on mac and cheese from Oklahoma Hall of Fame Member Ree Drummond, the Pioneer Woman!
Move it! Farmers and Ranchers run around all day! To stay in shape just like our agricultural heroes, why don’t we practice some yoga and get our bodies moving. Farm animal yoga is fun and interactive. Follow this link here to get in on the fun!
