Join a local Young Ag Professionals group

County level Young Ag Professionals groups are meeting across the state. Each group’s activities is driven by those who participate, with some focusing on educational activities, some on social activities and some combine both. Find out where these local groups are in this directory. If there is not a group near you contact your county Farm Bureau about starting one. Ohio Farm Bureau has a manual with ideas to help you get started.
