Oklahoma Farm Bureau Names Former State Senator Ron Justice Vice President of Public Policy Oklahoma Farm Bureau has named Ron Justice vice president of public policy.

In his new role, Justice will direct the advocacy of Farm Bureau member policy at the state Capitol and throughout Oklahoma.

“From his time as an extension agent to serving in the state Senate, Ron has always been a staunch advocate for agriculture and rural Oklahoma,” said Rodd Moesel, OKFB president. “We’re honored to have him take the helm of our policy efforts, and look forward to all he will accomplish for our farmers and ranchers.”

Raised on a farm in Blaine County, Justice served the Oklahoma State University Cooperative Extension Service for 33 years before being elected to the Oklahoma Senate.

“Upholding the issues that are important to the people that live and work in rural Oklahoma has been a long-standing passion of mine,” Justice said. “I’m eager to work hand-in-hand with Farm Bureau members to bolster our state’s agriculture community.”

Justice was first elected to the state Senate in 2004 and served parts of Canadian, Grady and Kingfisher counties for 12 years. He served in many leadership roles as a state senator, including as vice chairman of agriculture and rural development, vice chairman of appropriations and chairman of the Republican Rural Caucus. He received the OKFB Champion Award in 2013, 2014 and 2015, and was a member of the OKFB 100 Percent Club.

A resident of Chickasha, Oklahoma, Justice holds a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in agricultural education from Oklahoma State University.
