Treanna Lavy is the new program assistant for the Champaign, Clark, Darke and Miami County Farm Bureaus. Lavy recently graduated from Wilmington College with a degree in agricultural communications with a minor in business administration. Since graduation, she is back with her family’s show pig operation T.Lavy Show Pigs while beginning her career with Farm Bureau. 

Lavy grew up on her family’s grain and livestock farm in Miami County and is the daughter of Lonnie and Tiffany Lavy. She was very involved in FFA throughout her high school career at Newton High School, earning her American Degree and competing in various Career Development Events as well. Lavy was also very active in 4-H, showing pigs for over 10 years at the county, state and national levels. She attributes these experiences to helping her find her passion in agriculture. Lavy said is excited to meet and begin working with the local farmers and community members!

Having opportunities to attend leadership institutes, advocate for rural Ohioans on the state and national level, facilitate young ag professionals events, and serve in a variety of leadership positions have helped my skills grow exponentially.

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.

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.

Washington, D.C. Leadership Experience
I was gifted the great opportunity through an Ohio Farm Bureau Foundation Youth Pathways grant to run a series of summer camps here. That really expanded my vision of what ‘grow, maintain, sustain and explain’ could actually be.

Farming for Good
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
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.
