Oklahoma Farm Bureau President Rodd Moesel Reports to the Membership About the Unique Challenging Year of 2020 at Their Virtual Statewide Meeting Oklahoma Farm Bureau held their 2020 online business meeting with guest speakers, including American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall, Governor Kevin Stitt, and OKFB President Rodd Moesel.

Oklahoma Farm Bureau's Rodd Moesel offered His closing report during the meeting and reflected on how proud he is of our farmers and ranchers this year for overcoming so many obstacles, "The Keyword has had to be flexibility. I think we can take our hats off to our staff and our members and how we've all been working to adjust to these unique and challenging times and display that flexibility."

Moesel mentioned all the work that has gone into dealing with the market disruptions that affected the biggest commodity in the beef market and the webinars and discussions that centered around that topic, "We had a special study trying to look at the beef markets and things we might do to encourage new processing and other things we could help to do in the beef market. It's a very complicated area, but we are working closely with the cattlemen and the ag industry to try to find solutions going forward."

Moesel expressed his excitement over the OKFB OSU Extension ATV program that is up and running in Guthrie. This allows for training on ATVs and in the future, will provide some leadership training opportunities for 4-H Clubs and FFA chapters.

Moesel closed with a round of thank you's for all the staff at Farm Bureau, the board, the overall leadership of the Farm Bureau team, and the appreciation for the three outstanding, outgoing board members for this year, Jimmy Kinder, Allen Jett, and Keith Kisling. He added that he looks forward to meeting the new state board members and getting them involved. Moesel wrapped up by thanking the board members, 'You all are just amazing. The ideas you come up with, the service you provide in your community, the time you spend on your county farm bureau boards and county Farm Bureau offices, the leadership you give throughout agriculture and rural Oklahoma. You're amazing, and it's such an honor to serve you and serve with you."

Leon Richards of Texas County, Kerry Givens of Comanche County and Stacy Simunek of Kay County were chosen by voting delegates in districts one, four and seven, respectively, to serve a three-year term on the OKFB board of directors. They replaced Kinder, Jett and Kisling .
