Brown County Fair 2022 mock livestock judging

On Tuesday, Sept. 27 the Brown County Junior Fair board hosted a 4-H Youth event from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. where Cloverbuds, Daisy Girl Scouts and Cub Scouts were invited to interact with several local businesses and professionals. In addition to the Brown County Farm Bureau, organizations represented included various 4-H clubs, Emergency Management, State Troopers, SWCD, local banks and more!

Brown County Fair mock livestock judging

Brown County Farm Bureau set up an activity at this event which included youth participating in a mock livestock judging. Participants were able to approach the table, select a small stuffed animal of their choice and were asked a series of questions about their animal. The participants were encouraged to engage in eye contact and to use their imaginations!  And, that they did!  We had a pig that said, “mooo,” and a duck named, “Wacky.”  Many thanks to Georgetown FFA students for assisting and being “judges.”

 

 

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.
