Farmers Grain honors Zaloudek for service

ENID, Okla. — Farmers Grain Co. recently presented Gini Zaloudek with a Tanks of Thanks gift card for her service to the community.

Zaloudek is founder and director of the WildHorse Gang, a Christian-based charitable organization of young people ages 6 to 17.

The WildHorse Gang performs services and raises funds to help Kremlin. Proceeds from the group are used for upkeep and improvement of the community’s swimming pool and help fund the Kremlin-Hillsdale Academic Enrichment Foundation. Zaloudek also is involved with Denny Price Family YMCA and Lions Club.

“Gini is such a positive role model and takes an active role in developing the youth of our community into good citizens,” said Kent Prickett, Farmers Grain Co. general manager. “The WildHorse Gang does a great job of involving area youth in activities where they can make a direct impact on their hometown.”

The Cenex Tanks of Thanks program recognizes people who do good deeds in their communities by rewarding them with free fuel from Cenex. Farmers Grain will nominate 30 outstanding area people for the program this year.

Farmers Grain is a full-service, multi-faceted agricultural cooperative with 14 locations in north central Oklahoma. The cooperative’s business units focus on agronomy, fuel, grain and risk management and include 8 million bushels of grain storage capacity, a fertilizer plant, a feed mill, bulk fuel sales, a feed and farm supply store, and in-house brokerage, insurance and financial credit services.

  • Jeff Bedwell Consider safety of forage beforehand

    Drought conditions of the past three to four years and in particular the past eight months had hay/forage inventories at critically low levels. The most recent period ranked as the third-driest period in recorded history. Not unlike the farmers and ranchers of other times of drought, ag producers now have been very resourceful to not only replace hay supplies that have dwindled but also add much-needed revenue to farm income.

  • Right to Farm web 1.jpg Ag industry seeks right to farm

    The emerging battle could have lasting repercussions for the nation’s food supply and for the millions of people worldwide who depend on U.S. agricultural exports. It’s also possible the right-to-farm idea could sputter as a merely symbolic gesture that carries little practical effect beyond driving up voter turnout in local elections.
