This November, Oklahoma voters will have a chance to decide on the fate of the state’s agricultural industry. State Question 777 (SQ 777) would add a new section to the Oklahoma Constitution relating to farming and ranching.
Essentially, SQ 777 would guarantee the right to engage in specific farming and ranching practices.The “Right to Farm,” measure would add a new section to create state constitutional rights protecting the following farm and ranch management practices including:
• The right to make use of agricultural technology,
• The right to make use of livestock procedures, and
• The right to make use of ranching practices.
