American Farm Bureau recently appointed Alisen Anderson to the American Farm Bureau Federation Young Farmers and Ranchers Committee. She is a member of the Ottawa County Farm Bureau and agriculture instructor at Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College.
Anderson will serve a two-year term beginning in February 2022. She will be serving on the 16-member committee to assist in the coordination of Young Farmers and Ranchers events, competitive events and the Harvest for All Program.
“This once in a lifetime opportunity will enable me to bring more resources, support and innovation to my classes, the agriculture department, NEO and most importantly our students,” said Anderson. “I am elated at the opportunity to serve with the support of NEO and OKFB.”
Anderson also helped establish the NEO Collegiate Farm Bureau Club. The club offers many resources and benefits on and off campus within agriculture policy. Students have a wide variety of opportunities as club members through scholarships, experience, and networking.
“Being a member of the Farm Bureau Club has helped me develop my leadership skills and step outside of my comfort zone,” said Kaitlyn Cloud, NEO Collegiate Farm Bureau Club President. “It is no surprise someone like Alisen is on the AFBF Young Farmers and Ranchers committee, because of her commitment to not only agriculture, but the future of agriculture. Her passion shines through and I have no doubt she will excel.”
Anderson and her husband, Jared, own and operate Anders Farms, where they grow corn, wheat and soybeans. They also manage and operate 500 commercial cattle, while raising their three children, Grace, Colton and Piper.
