Gov Mary Fallin Appoints Texas County Farm Bureau Member Joe Mayer to State Board of Agriculture

Thu, 03 May 2018 17:15:35 CDT

Gov Mary Fallin Appoints Texas County Farm Bureau Member Joe Mayer to State Board of Agriculture Texas County Farm Bureau member Joe Mayer of Guymon, Oklahoma, has been appointed by Gov. Mary Fallin and confirmed by the Oklahoma Senate to serve a four-year term as a member of the State Board of Agriculture.


The State Board of Agriculture both promotes and regulates agriculture in Oklahoma, with regulatory authority over areas such as animal health, food safety and consumer protection.


“Joe is a leader in the agriculture community whose knowledge and experience will prove valuable in his role on the State Board of Agriculture,” said Rodd Moesel, Oklahoma Farm Bureau president. “We’re proud to see our longtime member and friend chosen to serve our state’s farmers and ranchers.”


Mayer grew up on the cattle ranch his great-grandfather established in the Oklahoma Panhandle in 1883. The ranch has grown into a large beef and small grain operation, which has received national and international recognition for innovation and willingness to embrace new technologies.


A second-generation Farm Bureau member, Mayer has been actively involved in the farm organization for more than four decades. He represented District One on the OKFB board of directors from 1993 until 2002, and has served on the Texas County Farm Bureau board of directors.


The Texas County member also served on the OKAgFund board of directors, OKFB’s political action committee.


Mayer was honored with the Governor’s Outstanding Achievement in Agriculture award and inducted into the Oklahoma Agriculture Hall of Fame in 2007.


“Joe Mayer brings a great knowledge of the grain and cattle business to the State Board of Agriculture,” Fallin said. “He is at the forefront in the beef industry, and he will use what he has learned from using and adapting the latest technologies to improve ranchers and farmers across our state.”


Mayer and his wife, Mary Anne, have three children, Paul, Katie and Margie, who all still work for the family farm and ranch business.


Oklahoma Farm Bureau is a grassroots farm organization with more than 80,000 members throughout all 77 Oklahoma counties. Learn more by clicking here.
