Young agricultural professionals from across Ohio are invited to attend the annual Winter Leadership Experience “Extending our Roots” on Jan. 28 and 29 at the Duke Energy Center in Cincinnati. The conference features plenty of fun, 22 options for workshops, great food, and keynote speakers – including AFBF President Zippy Duvall.

Cost is $150 per person, with a $25 discount for students and educators, as well as a virtual only option. Register online through Jan. 4. You will need payment and full contact information at registration. You are responsible for securing your own hotel accommodations. The registration page has information on the Farm Bureau block at the Hyatt on West 5th Street, or you may book at another location.

Morrow County Farm Bureau will reimburse one-half of the conference registration fee for the first four attendees who contact the county office prior to the event. You can register online and notify us at the office at [email protected] or 419.747.7488 that you will be attending. Once you attend, you will receive your reimbursement.

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.

I appreciate the benefit of having a strong voice in my corner. The extras that are included in membership are wonderful, but I'm a member because of the positive impact to my local and state agricultural communities.

Strong communities
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
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.

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.

Knowing that horticulture is under the agriculture umbrella and having Farm Bureau supporting horticulture like it does the rest of ag is very important.

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.
