Growing our Generation: My agriculture story

This summer has been busy and full of new experiences for me. As a senior at Ohio State University, I have been completing my senior field experience with Ohio Farm Bureau Federation. During my time here, I have gotten to observe the many different aspects of Ohio Farm Bureau; from local county events and various trainings, to working on details with the state fair and with Farm Bureau’s Young Agricultural Professionals around the state.

Welcome! My name is Haley Kocher and I am from Crawford County, where I grew up on my family’s grain and cattle farm. My dad grows corn, soybeans, wheat, and hay. We have a handful of Holsteins and a small calf-cow herd. I enjoyed showing feeder calves for 10 years during my time as a 4-H member. At Ohio State, I am majoring in Community Leadership with a specialization in Community and Extension Education with a minor in Education (it’s a mouthful). I have been actively involved in Alpha Zeta Partners organization, as an after-school mentor, and Real Life.
