Meet Hamilton County Farm Bureau Trustee John Jacob
John grew up in a family who participated in Farm Bureau, but he didn’t actually join himself until two years ago. Nonetheless, this is John’s first term on the board of trustees, and he is thrilled to be able to give back to the community, in addition to his participation on the Hamilton County 4-H board.
John wants to have a broader voice in the community because that voice will potentially be heard in the state. Interacting with others is a great feature of the organization for him. John is married to his wife, Karen. They have been married for 15 years and are parents of a son who also is passionate about agriculture. John works on his family cattle operation. Other than farming, John runs a family owned masonry business. He can’t stress enough the importance of getting involved with the community through organizations, such as Farm Bureau, FFA, and 4-H because without participation, our voice will never be heard.
