Boman, Bevers recognized for bi-state conference work

Bomen and Bevers honored at 6th annual Red River Conference.

Dr. Randy Boman and  Stan Bevers were honored for their development and execution of the Red River Crops Conference at the 6th annual conference in Childress, Texas, in January. The Red River Crops Conference is a bi-state crops conference geared towards Oklahoma and Texas growers covering various commodities.

Boman, formally Oklahoma State University Extension State Cotton lead, in Altus, Okla., now serves as the senior technical service manager in cotton for Indigo Ag. Bevers, who was unable to attend due to a prior engagement, is retired.

“This conference was formed with the objective to present information from research conducted in Southwest Oklahoma and the Texas Rolling Plains to producers who farm in that same regional area,” says Gary Strickland, Jackson County Extension CED and Southwest Research and Extension Centers Dryland Cropping Systems Specialist, who also serves on the conference planning committee.

Boman, an Oklahoma State University graduate, spent 15 years with Texas A&M AgriLife Extension in Lubbock, Texas, as their cotton specialist before returning to Oklahoma in 2011, where he served as the research director and cotton Extension program leader for seven years.

“Randy was wanting to develop a regional cotton conference. We were wanting to develop an annual crops conference and we married the two together,” explains Strickland. “We came across the river and started visiting with Stan Bevers.”

Bevers was a professor and Extension economist-management for The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service, District 3 at Vernon, Texas. His primary focus was in ranch management and analysis, business planning, managerial accounting, and marketing.

The first conference was held in 2014 with the commitment to rotate the location each year between Texas and Oklahoma. The annual, two-day event is a joint effort between Texas A&M AgriLife and Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Services.

“We are very proud of the conference. Over the years, we’ve seen that you as producers and sponsors appreciate the conference and the information presented,” says Strickland to a packed room.

The annual event is spearheaded by an 11-member planning committee made up of agriculture agents, and extension educators and specialists from both Texas A&M and Oklahoma.

Boman was presented a bronze bust of a cowboy carrying the good news of agriculture with the conference logo displayed on the front. “Dr. Boman we appreciate you for all of the years of hard work and service. It was always a pleasure working with you and continuing to work with you,” says Strickland.
