Paul Brown and his wife Kay operate the Brown Dairy in Chickasha. The dairy has been in the Brown family since the early 1960s. Paul began operating the dairy at age 20 with 12 cows and a three-stall barn. Today they milk 220 cows. The Browns recently began a small cow/calf operation for beef production.
Brown represented the conservation district during the construction and inspection with NRCS of the Bitter Creek No. 18 flood control dam, completed in June 2006. The Brown Dairy helps with conservation education by hosting tours for students with visitors ranging from elementary school to exchange students from Germany, Russia and Brazil. Paul helps the district with its lagoon pump-out project and custom tractor services. Recently, he accompanied employees to look at potential equipment to help with operation and maintenance on flood control structures.
Paul currently chairs the Grady County Herd Improvement Association.
Grady County Conservation District appreciates the service of Paul Brown on its board of directors and the example he sets for conservation.
