stTracey Liskey reelected as Oregon Farm Bureau 1 Vice
At the annual Oregon Farm Bureau Convention in December in Gleneden Beach, Tracey Liskey of Klamath-Lake County Farm Bureau was reelected to a third two-year term as OFB First Vice President. He was elected by the House of Delegates, which is comprised of volunteer leaders from a multitude of agriculture backgrounds, representing each county Farm Bureau.
“Tracey is recognized not only within Farm Bureau but also around the state for his
knowledge on the issues facing agriculture, as well as his commitment and passion to making the industry stronger for all farmers and ranchers,” said OFB President Barry Bushue. “We are honored to have someone of Tracey’s caliber serve as Oregon Farm Bureau’s First Vice President.”
As OFB First Vice President, Liskey presides over the annual House of Delegates meeting, is familiar with all corporate records of the organization, and assists OFB President Barry Bushue when needed. Besides voting on officer positions, the House of Delegates met at the annual state convention to discuss Farm Bureau policy and set the course for the upcoming legislative session.
In January, Liskey will participate in the national American Farm Bureau House of Delegates as one of four seated representatives from Oregon. The meeting will be held at the AFBF National Convention in San Antonio.
Liskey also serves on numerous statewide Farm Bureau issue advisory committees: Ag Production and Transportation, Water, Budget and Investment, OFB Political Action Committee, and President’s Advisory Council.
Liskey is a flower, hay, beef, and fish producer based in Klamath Falls.
