solar energy

Madison County Farm Bureau members are invited to attend a special utility scale solar energy issues briefing, sponsored by the Madison County Farm Bureau. The briefing will be held at Beck’s Hybrids on Wednesday, June 15, at 6:30 p.m. | 720 US-40, London, OH 43140.

During the briefing, Dale Arnold, who is director of Energy, Utility and Local Government Policy with Ohio Farm Bureau, will discuss energy market trends, construction guidelines and remediation standards, as well as regulatory agencies governing this type of energy development. Issues concerning eminent domain and farmland preservation will be explored, as well as what landowners should consider in negotiating effective long-term lease agreements.

This briefing is for Farm Bureau members only and RSVP is required. To become a Farm Bureau member and/or RSVP, please call or email Madison County Farm Bureau at 800-451-8908 or [email protected] by June 14.

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.
