American Farmers & Ranchers is lauding the appointment of Scott Biggs as state executive director of the USDA Farm Service Agency for Oklahoma.

"The USDA has made a great choice in selecting Scott Biggs as the new FSA executive director," said Terry Detrick, AFR president. "Biggs will use his background in agriculture and the legal system to serve Oklahoma's farmers and ranchers. We can't think of a better choice."
Earlier this year AFR presented Biggs with the organizations' Advocacy award. After receiving the award, Biggs said "I am extremely grateful to receive an award for doing something I love, advocating for agriculture."
