OKFB's Rodd Moesel with His 2020 Review, the Upcoming Virtual Convention, and Looking Toward 2021

Wed, 09 Dec 2020 11:19:42 CST

OKFB's  Rodd Moesel with His 2020 Review, the Upcoming Virtual Convention, and Looking Toward 2021 Registration opened last week for the American Farm Bureau Federation Virtual Convention. This year's AFB Virtual Convention will be held from Jan. 10-13, 2021. For the first time, registration fees are being waived to give all Farm Bureau members and anyone interested in agriculture the opportunity to experience one of agriculture's premier events from the comfort and safety of home.

President of Oklahoma Farm Bureau, Rodd Moesel, said they are disappointed that they won't get to do the in-person event this year. Still, they are hoping that with the convention being virtual this year, more Oklahomans will get to join. "It's free, and anybody can sign on. You can get registered by going to the Oklahoma farm bureau website, and you can attend just the opening session, or you can attend all the programming from Sunday, January 10 to January 13."

Moesel said one of the good things about the convention being virtual is that viewers can pick and choose which sessions they want to attend or hear all the sessions. Moesel said there would be lots of great speakers and breakout sessions with subjects of interest to folks no matter what phase of agriculture they are currently in. Featured speakers for the virtual convention include Dirty Job's, Mike Rowe, Rorke Denver, and Beth Ford. Moesel said Rowe has become a great spokesman for Agriculture, "Mike Rowe has become a hero to many of us in agriculture and rural America, so it's going to be really cool to have him as part of the program."

Looking forward into 2021, Moesel said the big issue right now would be the change in national leadership with the transition from a Trump Administration to a Biden administration, "a lot of the attention is going to focus on who is leading the department of agriculture, who is leading the EPA, who is leading the trade issue. So figuring out who the players are and what direction they are heading. Figuring out in early January what the US Senate is going to look like." Moesel said that will have a huge impact on the whole country, but particularly on agriculture and trade issues, "We will have a large number of those kind of speakers at the convention, and we can start to try to build relationships and meet the folks that are going to be making those kinds of decisions."
