Rodd Moesel Says Farm and Ranch Representatives at GOP Convention Energized at Great American Farm LunchWed, 20 Jul 2016 20:24:01 CDT
Many farm state delegates at the 2016 National Republican Convention gathered on Wednesday for the 2016 Great American Farm Lunch, hosted by multiple farm and commodity organizations and companies. The Chairmen of the House and Senate Ag Committees, Mike Conaway and Pat Roberts, addressed the faithful and ripped the Obama Administration for burdensome regulations being placed on the backs of the American farmer and rancher.
One of the GOP Delegates from Oklahoma, Rodd Moesel, was in attendance at the luncheon, and told Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays that the Great American Farm Luncheon provided a lot of insight of what the agricultural community is expecting from the Trump-Pence GOP team.
According to Moesel, Charles W. Herbster, a farmer and businessman from southeast Nebraska, has been named National Chairman of the Agricultural and Rural Advisory Board and Committee of the Donald J. Trump campaign. Herbster spoke at the Luncheon and talked about his conversations that he has had with Mr. Trump to this point about agricultural issues. Moesel adds that the Nebraska Angus breeder and small business owner believes that Trump understands the importance of trade to the farm and ranch community- and wants to build on the success already achieved- and that current trade deals can be improved upon and be even better for the ag community.
Moesel said the lunch audience was really excited about the addition of Indiana Governor Mike Pence to the GOP Ticket, with many of the speakers talking about his farm policy credentials from his days on the House Ag Committee and then serving currently as the Governor of Indiana.
Moesel is the President of American Plant Products based in Oklahoma City and currently serves on the Board of Directors of the Oklahoma Farm Bureau.
