Dr. Barry Pollard named Annual Agriculture Hall of Fame Inductee
Set to be honored at the 1st General Session of the Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Convention, Sec. of Agriculture, Blayne Arthur is proud to announce Dr. Barry Pollard as the recipient of the Governor’s Outstanding Achievement Award in Agriculture. The Waukomis rancher will become the 23rd inductee into the Oklahoma Agriculture Hall of Fame, the state’s most prestigious agriculture award.
Neurosurgeon by day and farmer by night, Dr. Barry Pollard has held many roles, but passion for agriculture runs deep.
Growing up in the rural town of Hennessey, he is no stranger to the agriculture industry.
“I was always actively involved in 4-H and FFA,” said Pollard. “We showed hogs pigs cattle – county fair state fair you name it. I really cherished my agriculture background and I never envisioned myself being a big-city doctor. I wanted to come home and be around the people I grew up with and live the agriculture life I experienced as a child.”
