Annually the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation recognizes a volunteer leader in each county for his or her service and dedication to the organization. County Boards of Trustees are asked to select a person that has given time and effort to the organization to further the mission of Farm Bureau: “Working together for Ohio farmers to advance agriculture and strengthen our communities.”

Guernsey County Farm Bureau has selected Bob Duffey, Cambridge, who will be recognized as one of the 86 county volunteers at this year’s Ohio Farm Bureau 100th annual meeting held in Columbus, Dec. 6-8.

Duffey has been a resident of Guernsey County for 75 years and married to his wife, Maxine for 55 years. They have three children along with six grandchildren and raised appaloosa horses. Bob owns his own business, BD Trucking. He served as an Adams Township trustee and has been a Farm Bureau board member for six years. Duffey pulled the Farm Bureau Christmas Parade float this past year, has worked at the pork chop dinner and been involved with the membership campaign.

As a member of Farm Bureau, I am glad that this organization takes action when necessary to protect and advance agriculture.

If you have issues with local planning or have legal questions, someone at the Farm Bureau has the answer for you, or they’ll connect you with someone who does.

We go to a lot of Farm Bureau events, and there’s a lot of camaraderie built because you’re meeting with people who have similar interests and goals.

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, D.C.
