Farm Bureau Day at Cockeye Creamery

June 11, 2022 was a beautiful day in Warren as we celebrated National Dairy Month and our Trumbull County Dairy Farmers and farm families!

There were cow balloons and goodie bags for the kids and prizes for anyone who wanted to take their turn at answering an agriculture-related question. A gift basket with a “dairy-theme” was also given away. Our lucky winner was Meghan Turon!  Anyone could join or renew their Farm Bureau membership at Farm Bureau Day for a FREE Farm Bureau coffee mug or mason jar mug.

Cockeye Creamery partnered with Trumbull County Farm Bureau and 10% of the proceeds during the celebration went to the Trumbull County Farm Bureau Scholarship program.  This program was started in the mid 80s as a member benefit to help provide college scholarships to our members with college-bound dependents.

The application is available yearly in the early spring with the deadline being on or around April 1. It is an online application available available on our website and Facebook page.

This year’s donation was $246.81!  “Thank you Cockeye Creamery” for your continued support – we appreciate it!

 

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.

Leadership development
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.
