HERSHEY – Cambria County farmer Tommy Nagle has been re-elected as Vice President of Pennsylvania Farm Bureau (PFB) by voting delegates at the 73rd Annual Meeting of the state’s largest farm organization.
Nagle previously was appointed as Vice President by the PFB Board of Directors to fill a vacancy following last year’s Annual Meeting.
“It was very humbling to be re-elected by the Farm Bureau members and delegates,” PFB Vice President Tommy Nagle said. “President Hoffman and I will have a full agenda to promote and enhance the agenda of agriculture.”
Nagle raises beef cattle and grows crops on his family farm in Patton, Cambria County.
Nagle served on the PFB State Board of Directors for three years before being elected Vice President. Nagle has served on the Cambria County Farm Bureau Board of Directors for eight years, from 2011-2019 and has served as the President of Cambria County Farm Bureau from 2014-19. Nagle has been a longtime contributor to Farm Bureau, previously serving as the Vice President of his county, and he served as the policy development chair and the Young Farmer and Rancher (now Young Ag Professionals) chair in Cambria County.
In 2013, Nagle and his wife, Tracy, won PFB’s Young Farmer and Rancher Achievement Award, which is awarded to a Young Farmer and Rancher involved in production agriculture who has excelled in their farm or ranch and that demonstrate superior leadership skills. Overall, Nagle has more than a decade of experience in Farm Bureau leadership roles.
Nagle previously worked for DelGrosso Foods, as a purchase director for Imler’s Poultry and as a business banker for M&T Bank.
Nagle holds an accounting degree from Saint Francis University. Tommy and Tracy have five children.
“I would like to congratulate Tommy for being elected as the Vice President of Pennsylvania Farm Bureau,” PFB President Chris Hoffman said. “We have been able to work well together in the past year and Tommy brings a variety of skills to the table that will help us lead Pennsylvania Farm Bureau forward.”
Hundreds of farmers from across the state attended Pennsylvania Farm Bureau’s 73rd Annual Meeting at the Hershey Lodge from Nov. 12-15, to set policy for the statewide organization on issues affecting farm and rural families.
