During its January meeting, the Licking County Farm Bureau Board of Trustees accepted the Kentucky Tornado Challenge and donated $500 to Kentucky Farm Bureau to use for tornado relief needs. 

In addition to that monumental donation, the board also took action on the following items:

-The scholarship application is available, with a deadline of April 15, 2022.

-The Farmer’s Share Breakfast is Feb. 26 at C-TEC from 8 a.m.-10 a.m. Donations and sponsorships support Licking County 4-H Camp.

-The money received from Matesich Distributing for the “For the Farmers” Event will be used toward meals served during harvest this fall. The board will work with the local FFA Chapters interested in being involved and will plan for meal stations at local feed mills in mid-October.

-Ag Day at the Capital is Feb. 16. This event is by invitation only.

-SWCD and NRCS will be hosting a Local Work Group with Farm Bureau.

2022 Licking County Sponsorship Opportunities package was approved and will be shared to all interested parties. 

-A donation was made to support the East Central Ohio Beekeepers School.

-The board purchased a brick to support Learning for Life Farm.

-Licking County renewed its membership with the Licking County Cattleman’s.

I'm eternally grateful for the support Ohio Farm Bureau scholarships provided in helping me turn my dreams into reality.

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.
