Floor Speech

Date: June 21, 2022
Location: Washington, DC


Mr. THOMPSON of Pennsylvania. Mr. Speaker, I rise to honor the distinguished career of Mr. Dale Moore as he celebrates his retirement from the American Farm Bureau Federation. For 40 years, Dale has been an instrumental leader in agriculture policy.

Dale earned his bachelor's degree in animal science from Fort Hays State University. Dale then began his professional career as a legislative assistant to former U.S. Congressman and Senator Pat Roberts. Dale then transitioned to the House Committee on Agriculture to serve as legislative director while Mr. Roberts was chairman.

After years of hard work on Capitol Hill, Dale served as executive director of the National Cattlemen's Beef Association. Dale then became the USDA's chief of staff for all four Secretaries under President George W. Bush.

Dale has spent the last 11 years of his career with the American Farm Bureau Federation, serving as the executive director of public policy before being appointed executive vice president in 2018.

Dale has maintained an exemplary reputation for decades. He will be sincerely missed as he enters retirement, and his positive contributions to agriculture policy will be remembered for many years.

Congratulations, Dale, on your successful career. Best wishes to you in your next chapter.
