Gallia T-shirt

Gallia Ag Day sponsors 2022On Tuesday, May 10, the fourth graders from all the Gallia schools joined us at the fairgrounds for the 19th Annual Agriculture Awareness Day. Throughout the day the classes rotated through numerous stations presented by River Valley FFA, Gallia Academy FFA, South Gallia FFA, Gallia Soil and Water Conservation District, Bridgeport Equipment, Ohio State University- Gallia County, Shooting Aces 4-H Club/Gallia Conservation Club, Holzer Health System, Ohio Bee Association, United Producers Inc, Ohio Beef Council, and Bodimer Brothers Showpigs.

Prior to the event, all students were able to participate in a T-shirt drawing contest, where the winning drawing would be featured on the front of the T-shirt to go home with over 400 students and presenters. Jaycen Gleason of Hannan Trace Elementary won 1st place and was the featured drawing. Wesley Bodimer of Green Elementary was 2nd, and Honorable Mentions went to Gracie Martin of Hannan Trace and Layne Wright of Vinton Elementary. The students all enjoyed a day full of activities and learning about the various aspects of agriculture. We wish to thank all of the sponsors for making this day possible! 

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.
