American Farm Bureau Federation Executive Vice President Dale Moore today announced his plans to retire in 2022 after four decades as an agricultural leader in Washington, D.C., and elsewhere. AFBF President Zippy Duvall today commented on the announcement.
“Dale has been a tireless advocate on behalf of farmers and ranchers throughout his career and has certainly contributed to American Farm Bureau’s strength over the past four years. He has become a trusted advisor to me and to many state Farm Bureau presidents and staff.
“More broadly, Dale has dedicated more than 40 years of his professional life to being a champion for agriculture through his work on Capitol Hill, at USDA and in the private sector. He certainly deserves to step back and enjoy time with family, but he will be deeply missed. I’m very happy for him and his wife, Faith, as well as their kids and grandkids as they open this new chapter together.
“I’m also pleased that Dale has agreed to assist in the selection of his successor. I look forward to working closely with him in the months ahead as we position our organization for continued success. I know I speak for farmers, ranchers and elected leaders across the country when I thank Dale for his tremendous service.”
