Oklahoma Ag Mediation is Ready to Help with Disputes Producers May Be Facing

Mon, 28 Sep 2020 14:45:11 CDT

Oklahoma Ag Mediation is Ready to Help with Disputes Producers May Be Facing Right now is a stressful time for farmers, and people in general, and the Oklahoma Ag Mediation program reminds producers that they are open and ready to sit down and discuss issues that might benefit from Ag mediation.

Oklahoma Ag Mediation is a non-profit organization out of Oklahoma that provides mediation to agriculture producers who may need help with ag-related disputes.

Associate farm director KC Sheperd spoke with Mike Mayberry, Executive Director of the Oklahoma Agriculture Mediation program says their goal is to be a neutral party that doesn't take sides but helps both parties find a compromise, "The two people that are in dispute can agree to come to mediation and work with the mediator and try to resolve the issue, whatever it might be."

Mayberry says most of the time they can help with disputes, "Most likely we can if it fits in the listing of types of problems contained in the grant program we are a part of."

It could be a problem with a lender, or a contractual dispute, or even over a fence line with a neighbor. Mayberry says all of these things can be mediated without involving the courts, "Its a high-success, low-impact way to solve disputes. The mediator is always neutral, he's not on anyone's side, but on everyone's side."

These services are available at no cost for Oklahoma farmers and ranchers in all 77 counties.

If you have an issue that you would like to try to solve through mediation, you can go to https://www.ok.gov/mediation/ or call the officeat : 405-521-3934 or Toll Free: 1-800-248-5465
