Women in Ag Event

Sept. 15 we hosted the 7th Annual Shelby County Women in Agriculture event. Participants enjoyed time mingling and tasty food followed by hearing from great speakers! Thank you to Chasitie Euler with BASF, our keynote speaker, who talked to us about balance in our lives. Then we had Evin Bachelor from Wright & Moore Law, who is spoke on succession planning. The final speaker of the night, Julie Cassiano from Meal Prep Life in Sidney, helped us with tips for making meals easier and told her great life journey.

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.

Washington, D.C. Leadership Experience
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.
