Highest Honor Given to Member of Congress By American Farm Bureau- the Golden Plow- Presented to Frank Lucas The Chairman of the US House Agriculture Committee, Frank Lucas, R-OK, received American Farm Bureauís Golden Plow Award on Monday evening, during Oklahoma Farm Bureauís annual leadership conference at the Skirvin Hotel, Oklahoma City.


The Golden Plow award is presented annually to one member of the U.S. Senate and one member of the U.S. House of Representatives who have demonstrated strong support for Farm Bureau and agricultural issues.


The President of the American Farm Bureau, Bob Stallman, flew in from Washington to present this highest honor from AFBF to Chairman Lucas in front of his home state farmers and ranchers.


Representative Lucas is a fifth generation Oklahoman whose family has lived and farmed in the state for more than 100 years. He was first elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1994 and is currently serving his 11th term. Representing Oklahomaís third district, which comprises 32 counties in western and northern Oklahoma, Lucas is well aware of the major rural and agricultural issues.


Lucas is only the fourth Oklahoma lawmaker to receive the award- and the first member of the US House of Representatives from the state to be so honored. Sen. David Boren (1990), Sen. Don Nickles (1992) and Sen. Jim Inhofe (2010) are past recipients.
