Shannon Terrel

I’m Shannon Terrel, and I reside in New Carlisle, where I have been a lifelong resident of Clark County. I am very excited to serve as an intern this summer. I have recently completed my first year of college at Morehead State University majoring in agribusiness and marketing. I plan to obtain my bachelor’s degree and continue my passion for agriculture. Agriculture has become a big influence in my life. Farm Bureau has supported me in my ag experience and I hope to have the same impact on others.

Over the years, I have shown many different animals including goats, dairy feeders, and hogs. I have been heavily involved in 4-H and FFA and hope to continue following my passion, which is helping others as well as becoming a bigger advocate of agriculture. I am very excited and thankful for this opportunity and can’t wait to meet you all!

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.
