2022 Steer Show

During the 2022 Ohio State Fair, Bill Patterson (pictured right), Ohio Farm Bureau president, and Ty Higgins (left), senior director of media relations and communications for Ohio Farm Bureau, will join Cathann A. Kress, vice president for Agricultural Administration and dean of the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences, for the 2022 Dean’s Charity Steer Show benefiting Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Ohio.

The Aug. 2 show and sale at the Ohio Expo Center will feature teams consisting of a local celebrity exhibitor, media personality and a 4-H member and their steer. The Ohio Farm Bureau team includes an experienced 4-H family, the O’Reillys, who will be showing Patterson and Higgins the ropes.

Awards will include best steer, best dressed, showmanship and people’s choice. During the event, there will be a “sale” following the same procedures as a typical livestock sale, but without the actual transfer of livestock. Instead, all bids and sale proceeds will be donated to RMHC.

CFAES, the Ohio Cattlemen’s Association and Telhio Credit Union are sponsors of the event. Donations can be made to the Ohio Farm Bureau team by visiting through Aug. 31.

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.

We go to a lot of Farm Bureau events, and there’s a lot of camaraderie built because you’re meeting with people who have similar interests and goals.
