Former CFBF president Mosebar wins Distinguished Service Award
» December 7, 2010 «
Citing his decades of service to Farm Bureau, including 20 years as a statewide officer, the California Farm Bureau Federation has honored Doug Mosebar of Santa Ynez with its Distinguished Service Award. The award, the highest presented by the California Farm Bureau, was announced at the organization's Annual Meeting in Monterey last night.
Mosebar served as president of the state's largest farm organization from 2005 through 2009. He began service as a statewide Farm Bureau officer in 1989, when he was elected second vice president, and became first vice president in 1997.
"Doug Mosebar is an obvious choice for the Distinguished Service Award," California Farm Bureau President Paul Wenger said. "He has served our organization well for more than 20 years, representing California farmers throughout the state, the nation and even overseas."
Mosebar manages the Gainey Ranch near Santa Ynez, which grows a variety of crops and commodities including hay, squash, flowers, pumpkins and cattle. Before becoming a statewide Farm Bureau officer, he served as president of the Santa Barbara County Farm Bureau and as a member of the California Wheat Commission and the California Beet Growers Association advisory board.
"All of us at Farm Bureau give heartfelt thanks to Doug for his service on behalf of California family farmers and ranchers," Wenger said.
Mosebar was one of two Farm Bureau leaders awarded the Distinguished Service Award. Paul Sanguinetti of Stockton also earned the award for his 40 years of service with the San Joaquin Farm Bureau Federation.
The California Farm Bureau Federation works to protect family farms and ranches on behalf of 81,000 members statewide and as part of a nationwide network of more than 6.2 million Farm Bureau members.
