Farm Bureau member Clair Schockling and Chris Wells along with Noble Soil & Water Conservation District held Ag Day May 10 and May 11 for third grade students for Noble and Guernsey County. On May 11 they held the event at EORDC in Belle Valley. The students visited several sessions throughout the day with their class and learned about a variety of topics. The main theme was corn — its many types and uses in our diets and our lives. With the overwhelming generosity of local merchants, businesses and organizations, the students were able to get great souvenirs from their activities, and they got a T-shirt with the names of the sponsor on the back. One of the sessions included a sample of tasty Ohio popcorn for each student.

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.
