Assignment: Radio is where you'll find news and public affairs content produced by students studying journalism and/or broadcasting at the University of Oklahoma's Gaylord College of Journalism and Mass Communication. Some of these student-produced news reports focus on issues and events on the OU campus; others have a broader interest.

A Different Kind Of Farm In Oklahoma

Oliver & Friends/Jennie Hays

Jennie and Jason Hays’ farm isn’t like most other farms. The couple’s 22-acre property is a farm-animal rescue and sanctuary called Oliver and Friends. It is home to a hodgepodge of chickens, pigs, goats, calves, donkeys, horses, emus, and many other (mostly farm) animals. As Assignment Radio's Amber Friend reports, the farm is the Hays’ attempt to change minds about animal agriculture.
