As another year begins, Oklahoma Farm Bureau President Rodd Moesel recently weighed in on the lingering issues facing Oklahoma’s farmers and ranchers in a story in The Oklahoman.
Agricultural producers continue to endure uncertainty as they deal with the impacts of weather, the coronavirus pandemic and a new administration, Moesel said in the story.
“As a farmer or rancher, you have no choice but to roll the dice because most crops take a few months and some (like cattle) take a few years to produce, so you always are looking into a black box of uncertainty,” Moesel said in the story. “Farmers are incurable optimists, and they have to be. You have to believe things will be good or better, or you wouldn’t be doing it.”
