Eddie Fields, a third-generation rancher in Osage County, is involved in nearly every aspect of the beef industry with a commercial cow/calf operation, a stocker yearling operation, a backgrounding yard, a purebred show cattle operation and a direct-to-consumer beef business.


Fields of Wynona, Oklahoma, received a bachelor’s degree in animal science from OSU in 1990. As president of Fields Ranch Inc. and Fields Land and Livestock LLC, he has learned to value soil, water and natural resources on his family ranch. His passion for agriculture led him to public office in the Oklahoma legislature.


Fields served in the Oklahoma State House of Representatives, representing District 36 from 2008 to 2010, and in the Oklahoma State Senate, representing District 10 from 2010 to 2018.


While in the Oklahoma legislature, he served as Senate assistant majority floor leader,

member and chair of the Senate Agriculture and Rural Development Committee, chair of the Senate Rules Committee, and vice chair of the Senate Energy and Appropriations committees. Fields also worked with OSU Ferguson College of Agriculture interns during his time in office.


Fields used his agriculture and ranching experience for critical lawmaking decisions and was a key advocate for funding OSU Extension and OSU Ag Research. He continues to support OSU and agriculture in the state.
