Roger Baker of Wooster has been re-elected District 8 trustee for the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation. During his fourth three-year term, he will help govern the state’s largest general farm organization and represent Farm Bureau members from Ashland, Medina, Summit and Wayne counties.

A 30-year member of Wayne County Farm Bureau, Baker has served as a county board trustee and chairman of the public policy committee and is a past vice president of the board. In 2001, he was an OFBF Discussion Meet finalist and participated in a trade mission to Europe in 2000. Baker is involved with other local agricultural leadership roles and community groups.

I see the value and need to be engaged in the community I live in, to be a part of the decision-making process and to volunteer with organizations that help make our community better.

Leadership development
With not growing up on a farm, I’d say I was a late bloomer to agriculture. I feel so fortunate that I found the agriculture industry. There are so many opportunities for growth.

Growing our Generation
Labor has always been an issue, mainly because we are a seasonal operation. So that's a challenge finding somebody who only wants to work three months out of a year, sometimes up to six months.

Farm Bureau involvement has taught me how to grow my professional and leadership experience outside of the workforce and how to do that in a community-centric way.

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.

So many of the issues that OFBF and its members are advocating for are important to all Ohioans. I look at OFBF as an agricultural watchdog advocating for farmers and rural communities across Ohio.
