American Farm Bureau Federation Executive Vice President Dale Moore announced that he plans to retire this year. That brings a career of four decades as an agricultural leader in Washington, D.C., and elsewhere to a close. “Dale has been a tireless advocate on behalf of farmers and ranchers throughout his career,” says Farm Bureau President Zippy Duvall. “He has certainly contributed to the American Farm Bureau’s strength over the last four years as a trusted advisor to me and many state farm bureau presidents and staff.” Moore spent more than 40 years of his professional life championing agriculture through working on Capitol Hill, at USDA, and in the private sector. “He deserves to step back and enjoy time with his family,” Duvall says, “but he will be deeply missed.” Moore agreed to assist Farm Bureau in selecting his successor. “I look forward to his help in positioning Farm Bureau for continued success,” Duvall adds.
