WACO -- A lifetime commitment to agriculture was recognized Dec. 5 as the Texas Farm Bureau (TFB) bestowed its Distinguished Service Award upon former TFB Director of Organization Joe Maley for his four decades of dedicated service. Maley received the organization’s highest honor at the 77th Texas Farm Bureau annual meeting in Waco. According to two Dec. 5 Texas Farm Bureau press releases, Maley was also recognized as the staff winner of the Texas Farm Bureau Pioneer Award.

Throughout his tenure, Maley was as comfortable with farmers and ranchers in the field as he was with legislators in Austin. His greatest contribution to the organization was his ability to bridge the gap between the Texas Farm Bureau members’ needs and legislative agendas at the state Capitol.

In 1969, Maley joined the Texas Farm Bureau field staff and later transitioned to the legislative team, where he worked for eminent domain reform, protected groundwater rights, and other landmark issues on behalf of the organization’s members. Maley retired from the Texas Farm Bureau last spring and now divides his time between his land outside of Waco and his family’s South Texas ranch near Mineral in Bee County.

Over the course of the Texas Farm Bureau’s 77-year history, only 27 individuals have been recognized with the Distinguished Service Award -- formerly called the Meritorious Service Award. Past winners include current American Farm Bureau Federation President and Texas Farm Bureau past President Bob Stallman, as well as several other Texas Farm Bureau past presidents, a Texas governor, congressmen, and state senators.

The Pioneer Award honors one outstanding Texas farmer or rancher in each of the organization’s 13 state districts, as well as one staff member.
