Although the week started off a bit soggy, it wrapped up with sunny days and lots of smiling faces. The Marion County Farm Bureau was a Gold sponsor of the Marion County Fair and a proud supporter of the Junior Fair participants.

We hope everyone enjoyed letting go of some energy after the long week of fitting and showing. The Feed Sack Decorating Contest had the most participants ever. Congratulations to the six winning teams which received $25 cash prizes! We had 220 participants for the Feed Sack Decorating Contest and Barnyard Olympics, and we hope everyone remembered to redeem their milkshake tickets!

Following the fair, we secured Mark’s Homemade Ice Cream to provide refreshment to the attendees of the Marion County Carcass Show where the champion county fair animals were graded on the rail.

Marion County Farm Bureau hopes everyone has a great summer and we look forward to seeing all of your great memories from the fair on Facebook!

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.
