2020 was a challenging year, but the work of Pickaway County Farm Bureau didn’t stop. Your membership enabled us to have a positive impact in our community:
- Purchased 56 livestock projects and 45 add-ons at the 2020 junior fair sale as the Pickaway County Buyers Club

The Pickaway County Farm Bureau invited members to contribute to the policy development process. We met with local candidates during elections to understand their value alignment with Farm Bureau members. Four delegates represented Pickaway County at the 2020 Ohio Farm Bureau Annual Meeting to advance policy initiatives that support our county.
The Ohio Farm Bureau Federation worked hard on your behalf at the state level. When the pandemic hit, Farm Bureau made sure agriculture and the entire food system was included as ‘critical infrastructure’ and ‘essential’. Ohio Farm Bureau advocated for farm support resulting in billions of dollars in USDA direct payments to assist farmers and business owners through the CARES Act. We ensured farm markets were treated as grocery stores, allowing direct farm sales to continue as a source of income for farmers. Ohio Farm Bureau worked to minimize food chain disruptions including dairy and meat processing.
Members like you make it happen.
Thank you for your continued support, and warm wishes this holiday season from the Ohio Farm Bureau Family.
Farm Bureau is an incredible organization that has given me countless professional development opportunities in addition to advocating for all sizes and types of farmers.
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.Washington, D.C. Leadership Experience
