Kayla Weaver

Kayla Weaver of Upper Sandusky is one of nine farmers and agribusiness professionals selected to participate in Ohio Farm Bureau’s 2022-2023 AgriPOWER Institute.

This yearlong program focuses on public policy issues confronting agriculture and the food industry such as consumer relations, regulations, energy, and trade policies. It helps individuals develop the skills necessary to become effective leaders and advocates for agriculture by learning from experts in these fields.

Weaver is a member of Wyandot County Farm Bureau and is owner and principal agent for Crossroads Crop Insurance in Upper Sandusky. She is past president of the county Farm Bureau board and serves on the Wyandot County Senior Fair Board.

“AgriPOWER XIII will provide these future leaders the opportunity to learn about the diversity of issues facing Ohio agriculture while learning how to be effective advocates for the industry,” said Melinda Witten, AgriPOWER director. “We are excited for these members to experience the AgriPOWER program as part of their leadership journey.”

One of the sessions will take place in Washington, D.C. to give participants a better understanding of national and global issues, and an out-of-state session will help them learn about the differences and similarities in agriculture outside of Ohio.

Partnering with Ohio Farm Bureau on AgriPOWER Class XIII are Ohio Farm Bureau Foundation, Ohio Soybean Council, Farm Credit Mid-America, Select Sires, Freedom Freight and Crossroads Crop Insurance.

Farm Bureau is an incredible organization that has given me countless professional development opportunities in addition to advocating for all sizes and types of farmers.

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, D.C.
