Nicole Cook

This year’s Crawford, Marion, Morrow and Richland County Farm Bureau summer intern is Nicole Cook. Nicole is an upcoming junior at The Ohio State University majoring in agribusiness and applied economics and minoring in animal sciences. On campus, she is involved with Agribusiness Club and Saddle and Sirloin Club. She recently took a trip to Texas with the Agribusiness Club where she visited the Texas Farm Bureau and became interested in interning here.

Nicole is originally from Richland County and is a 2021 graduate of Madison Comprehensive High School. During her high school career, she was heavily involved in 4-H. Throughout her years in 4-H, she held various leadership positions in her club. At the fair she showed dairy and beef feeder calves and steers, and market hogs. Nicole enjoyed her time in 4-H, but since the end of her showing career, she is eager to get involved in other activities within agriculture.

Some of her responsibilities as an intern this summer will include promoting membership, aiding in the coordination of events, and helping to inform the public on agricultural-related topics.

“I am very excited about this internship, the future of this organization, and getting to know all of the people involved. I’m looking forward to planning and executing events that advocate for agriculture and meeting the members of each county,” she said.

Welcome, Nicole!

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.

I appreciate the benefit of having a strong voice in my corner. The extras that are included in membership are wonderful, but I'm a member because of the positive impact to my local and state agricultural communities.

Strong communities
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
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.

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
Knowing that horticulture is under the agriculture umbrella and having Farm Bureau supporting horticulture like it does the rest of ag is very important.

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.
