Boquist Honored by ODFA
Bub Boquist was recently honored by the Oregon Dairy Farmers Association as their Community Service Award recipient. Bub has spent a lifetime dedicated to the dairy industry and to public service.
He was born in Tillamook and grew up on his family’s farm located on the lower Kilchis River. From an early age, he knew he wanted to be a farmer. Bub married his wife Dolly in 1951, and they had six children. They milked cows for many years, farmed and raised their family in Tillamook until he finally retired from dairying just a few years ago.
Bub has provided leadership and service in the Tillamook community throughout his life. He speaks from the heart, drawing on his incredible wisdom, thoughtfulness and years of experience. His leadership and public service to help agriculture and the general public in the area of soil and water conservation and flooding has been extremely significant and appreciated by those living in Tillamook County.
Bub served on the Soil & Water District Board for 30 years, Farm Bureau board for 10 years, the Juno Water District for 50 years and the Watershed Council. At the present time, he is serving on the Tillamook Bay Estuary Committee.
Bub served three terms as a board member on the Agriculture Stabilization and Conservation board in the 1970’s. Bub was a charter member of the Tillamook Bay Habitat and Estuary Improvement District that started in June of 2002 and he continues to be involved today. In 2015, Bub & Dolly were the Grand Marshall’s of the June Dairy Parade.
Bub has spent his life dedicated to producing quality dairy products, raising his family and serving on boards that focus on helping keep agriculture successful for years to come. In 2015 Bub was named as an OSU Diamond Pioneer Agriculture Career Achievement Award winner.
On behalf of the Oregon Dairy Farmers Association, congratulations and thank you to Bub Boquist, our Community Service Award recipient.
