Delegates to 2021 Ohio Farm Bureau Annual Meeting
The Ohio Soybean Council shared its passion for agricultural education by explaining the resources available to students. Grow Next Gen brings agriculture science to the classroom by providing real-world educational tools to engage the next generation workforce. OSC expressed how important it is for youth to understand where their food comes from, the true science behind GMOs and the variety of ag careers students can choose from in the future. The Council’s “Future Eats” program is targeted to college students. Any student can participate, but the program is geared toward those who may not be majoring in agriculture or have an ag background. Through this program, students are able to go on farm tours and learn valuable insights agriculture has to bring to the table. Farm Bureau is proud to be working with such a diligent organization!
