The Paulding County Farm Bureau wants to encourage members to get familiar with their board and members, so we are going to kick off some blogs by introducing one of our board members. Douglas Goyings is a Paulding County board trustee and we asked him a few questions about agriculture and Farm Bureau to help our members get to know him a little better.
Q. What does agriculture mean to you?
A. It’s not only a way of life, but a business that always can be a challenge. No two days run perfect as in a movie. Every day seems like a new challenge or some days heart break when nothing goes right.
Q. What influenced your career in agriculture?
A. My father and grandfathers were farmers. I always enjoyed farm work, including baling straw. We are always working on something new. One of our sayings is don’t tell me I can’t do something; we will find a way to get it done.
Q. What advice would you give to the next generation of agriculturalists?
