Cathy Minges

Cathy Minges of Okeana, has been the backbone of strength for Butler County Farm Bureau. After 23.5 years of service, Cathy has retired to spend more time with her grandchildren and relax a bit more. As the county office manager, no task was too small. She assisted all trustees with any task requested. She served on multiple committees over time, including scholarship, code, annual meeting and budget. 

Butler County Farm Bureau has been blessed with her passion to keep the grassroots of our organization alive. Congratulations, Cathy Minges. Our organization has been fortunate (yes I looked that up in my thesaurus) in more ways than we could imagine by your devotion and dedication. 

We will miss you, 

Christy Montoya

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.
