A few tips for farmers include:

– All APVs not primarily used for farm use should be registered with the state and display a license plate. APV owners who primarily use the vehicle for farm use and qualify for the Current Agricultural Use Valuation program are not required to register or plate their APVs.

– The law includes restrictions on where children under the age of 16 can ride APVs.

– Penalties for trespassing are accelerated when trespassing is committed using an APV.

– While APVs can provide great utility and even fun, drivers should be cautious and take proper safety measures to protect themselves as they ride.

– Even though APVs should generally not be driven on a public roadway, there may be exceptions when such use is allowed, especially in the case of farmers. However, just like for cars, the law requires APVs have certain equipment features.

Having opportunities to attend leadership institutes, advocate for rural Ohioans on the state and national level, facilitate young ag professionals events, and serve in a variety of leadership positions have helped my skills grow exponentially.

Growing our Generation
Labor has always been an issue, mainly because we are a seasonal operation. So that's a challenge finding somebody who only wants to work three months out of a year, sometimes up to six months.

If it wasn't for Farm Bureau, I personally, along with many others, would not have had the opportunity to meet with our representatives face to face in Washington.

Washington, D.C. Leadership Experience
I was gifted the great opportunity through an Ohio Farm Bureau Foundation Youth Pathways grant to run a series of summer camps here. That really expanded my vision of what ‘grow, maintain, sustain and explain’ could actually be.

Farming for Good
I see the value and need to be engaged in the community I live in, to be a part of the decision-making process and to volunteer with organizations that help make our community better.

So many of the issues that OFBF and its members are advocating for are important to all Ohioans. I look at OFBF as an agricultural watchdog advocating for farmers and rural communities across Ohio.
