Ty Higgins joined Ohio Farm Bureau as its director of media relations in January, after spending several years as a farm broadcaster with Ohio Ag Net. Higgins grew up in agriculture, spending much of his time on his grandparents’ farms in Licking County. Helping farm families through media advocacy is his role now, but he has been an advocate for farmers in a big way for a long time.
Last year, the self-proclaimed “dairy kid” started a social media campaign with the hashtag #10GallonChallenge to help bring awareness to the challenges a glut of milk has brought to dairy farmers across the state and the country. It quickly grew into a nationwide movement that is still alive today.
Recently, Higgins donated another 10 gallons to the Mid-Ohio Food Bank, which serves 20 counties in Ohio. The #10GallonChallenge has now taken place in all 50 states.
