Forst to attend first Conservation Commission meeting

Clay Forst, who serves on the Jefferson County Conservation District board, will participate as a Commissioner in his first Oklahoma Conservation Commission meeting on July 1.

He will represent the Area IV Conservation Districts of: Comanche, Cotton, Custer, Deer Creek, Grady, Greer, Harmon, Jackson, Jefferson, Kiowa, North Caddo, North Fork of Red River, South Caddo, Stephens, Tillman, Upper Washita, Washita and West Caddo, according to a press release.

Today, Clay Forst along with his mother, Terry Stuart Forst, and brother, Robert Forst, operate the Stuart Ranch, consisting of two divisions: 11,000 acres in Bryan County and 32,000 acres near Waurika in Jefferson County. The ranch includes a cow-calf operation, yearling cattle, American Quarter Horses and a hunting operation. Clay is in charge of the latter, Stuart Ranch Outfitters, which conducts guided hunts. He also oversees the ranch’s diverse wildlife populations.

More than 150 years of tradition run through the Caddo operation of the Stuart Ranch.

Plus, the Chisholm Trail runs through the painting-perfect pastures of the family’s Waurika ranch land.

Clay Forst wears that history every day, just as he does his boots and jeans.

However when asked to speak during a Senate confirmation hearing to members of the Agriculture and Wildlife Committee, Forst turned and locked eyes with he and wife Lindsey’s sons Arlington, 4, and Rogers, 2.
