AgriPOWER session two: connecting with experts and each other
Participants in AgriPOWER Class VI recently spent a few days in Wooster for their second session in the program. They spent three days learning about social media, media relations, visual media, and telling their story as well as touring the Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center and several other farms in the area. Here are a few excerpts from participant blogs, and links to their full blogs.
“Being in the swine industry, I found it very interesting and helpful to hear the perspective of issues facing other areas of agriculture. We have to work together for the continued success of all agriculture in Ohio.” ~ Jarred Black, production supervisor for Kalmbach Swine Management. Full blog.
“These sessions help me to have more beneficial conversations and provide me with connections to the people who understand the issues better than I do. It’s not about knowing all the answers; it’s about knowing where to find all the answers.” ~ Kayla Jones, director of CAUV and ag district programs and deputy director of oil and gas taxation for the Licking County Auditor’s office. Full blog.
“After only the second session, the AgriPOWER VI class is starting to really connect and I am loving the network we are developing.” ~ Kristy Watters, fiscal officer/educational coordinator for the Southern Ohio Agricultural & Community Development Foundation. Full blog.
