Crawford County Farm Bureau and Crawford County Cattlemen’s Association invite you to join us March 2 at 6:30 p.m. at the Bucyrus Nazarene Church for a night with Amanda Radke and Zoe Kent speaking about agricultural advocacy.

Amanda Radke
Amanda Radke

Amanda Radke is a fifth generation rancher from Mitchell, South Dakota who has dedicated her career to serving as a voice for the nation’s farmers and ranchers. Radke regularly tackles industry issues as a columnist and speaker.

A former National FFA Extemporaneous Speaking Champion and National Beef Ambassador, Radke has spent the last 15 years on the road fighting for the agriculture, rural America, and the western way of life. She’s gone head-to-head against animal rights activists, environmental extremists, politicians, and celebrities who seek to eliminate animal agriculture. She believes food security is national security, and her work is focused on keeping producers on the land and ensuring every citizen has access to safe, affordable and nutritious food in this

Radke is a mom of four and the author of seven agriculturally-accurate children’s books, and her goal is to help promote agricultural literacy in schools to empower the next generation of consumers and to protect the farmers and ranchers providing the essentials of life for all.

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.
