2020 YAP Washington, D.C. Leadership Experience goes virtual

The farm economy, trade and rural broadband are just some of the topics that would have been discussed on the Ohio Farm Bureau Young Ag Professionals Washington, D.C. Leadership Experience. While this annual trip was not able to take place this year, Ohio Farm Bureau brought the experience to our members, helping those new and beginning farmers have their concerns addressed…virtually.

Ty Higgins shared some questions from YAP members as he recently visited with American Farm Bureau’s Dr. John Newton and Cody Lyons about these important topics and more.

The upcoming election and farmer mental health are a couple more topics that would have been discussed as the Young Ag Professionals visited with congressional leaders in Washington. Ty Higgins shared some questions from YAP members as he recently visited with American Farm Bureau’s R.J. Karney about those important topics and more.

Important issues for Ohio Farm Bureau Young Agriculture Professionals are being addressed at the Statehouse in Columbus, including new and beginning farmer legislation and rural broadband. Ty Higgins recently got an update on these efforts from Ohio Farm Bureau’s Director of State Policy Jenna Beadle.

Plans continue for the 2021 Young Ag Professionals Winter Leadership Experience, Jan 29 and 30. YAP Committee Co-Chair Aaron Harter shared all of the details about the conference and how to get involved with Ohio Farm Bureau’s Ty Higgins.
