As Class VI of Ohio Farm Bureau Federationís AgriPOWER Institute wrapped up, I couldnít help but think back to the first session when my peers and I outlined our personal goals for the program. The goals I listed in that July session included learning more about Ohio agriculture and networking with agricultural professionals across the state. I did not imagine in that beginning session just how much AgriPOWER Institute would help me meet those goals.
