Farm Bureau President Rodd Moesel Talks About the Census, and 2020 Goals

Farm Bureau President Rodd Moesel Talks About the Census, and 2020 Goals Oklahoma Farm Bureau Leadership Conference is going on this week in Oklahoma City where they will be covering state and federal agricultural policy updates and organizational updates

Associate Farm Director KC Sheperd caught up with Farm Bureau President Rodd Moesel to talk about what he thinks are the most important challenges affecting producers across the state. Moesel says one thing he wants to remind people of is the 2020 U.S. Census, "We're going to be putting a lot of emphasis on encouraging our county organizations to be involved in their communities, and to encourage everyone in rural Oklahoma to be counted."

Moesel said the Census is very important not only for state and federal funding, but also for representation in the state house and congress. He also said they would be talking about some bigger legislative issues that pertain to water that has been used in the oil well business and how to treat that water.

As far as international trade, Moesel said they are hopeful, "Its been nice to finally get to have some agreements done. Its very imporant to us for those trade deals to get cleared up, and for that trade to start turning into real dollars so it can start moving markets."

With a new year in place Moesel says they are currently trying to do everything they can to support the county organizations to help them be more effective in their community, "We think we've got a lot of the right people in place, and we're working hard to support them. We are working on sharing the great ideas that somone comes up with in Comanche county with other counties, and good ideas that someone comes up with in Alfalfa county. Then we will support the agriculture causes, whether its a new Ag Hall at OSU, or wheather its legislation at the Capital. We are trying to do a better job of all agriculture working togehter so we can advance the cause for agriculture in rural Oklahoma."
