Buckeye Farm News

Ohio farmers found value in social media through Twitter, Facebook and YouTube in 2010, making sure agriculture’s voice was heard in important issues as conversations took place on the Web.

Ohio Farm Bureau has been recognized as a national leader in helping farmers take advantage of this new opportunity to share information.

The organization has incorporated free hands-on social media training for members on a local level, prepping hundreds of farmers and others to use Facebook and Twitter to advocate on behalf of agriculture.

Multiple Ohio farmers were among 50 selected to attend the first ever national social media training conference for farmers in August
