soil health

Logan County Farm Bureau is happy to promote an upcoming meeting about soil health. This issue has always been an important part of the sustainability of a farm. Each year we learn more about the conditions in which soils thrive and what Best Management Practices can be implemented to ensure we are improving the soil, rather than degrading it.

Ray ArchuletaRay Archuleta has spent his career researching and teaching soil health. He is a Certified Professional Soil Scientist who has over 30 years of experience as a soil conservationist, water quality specialist, and conservation agronomist with the USDA Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS). Since retiring, he founded Understanding Ag, LLC and the Soil Health Academy, LLC. Through these organizations, he teaches biomimicry strategies and agroecology principles to improve soil function. He also operates a 150-acre farm with his family in Missouri.

Event details

On Feb. 24, Archuleta will discuss soil health and regenerative ag practices at the West Liberty Salem High School near West Liberty, Ohio. This is possible through the generous support of the Logan County Land Trust by the Lewis and Dorothy Tamplin Trust.

Archuleta’s presentation will focus on soil regeneration and health. He will help farmers understand key principles of regenerative agriculture and how to successfully implement soil-improving practices.

The event will kick off at 5:30 p.m. with dinner. The presentation will begin at 6:30 p.m. Pre-registration is required as space is limited. The cost to attend is $20 and includes dinner.

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.

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.
