Morrow County trustees

Morrow County Farm Bureau’s Annual Meeting was held on July 13 at the Gilead Friends Church in Mount Gilead. Joel Starkey provided music during dinner, which was prepared by the Morrow County Pork Producers.

The 2022 Morrow County Farm Bureau Annual Meeting minutes and financials were presented and approved. Trustee and delegate elections were held, and policies and code changes were voted on and approved. The board trustees elected were Eddie Lou Meimer, Seth Romine, Kelly Sautter-Tennant and Madison Ott. Along with the President Seth Romine and Vice President Manny Heilman, Nicole Feilon and Julie Logan were elected to serve as delegates for the 2024 OFBF Annual Meeting. Russ Mayer will serve as the alternate.

Kelly Sautter-Tennant was awarded the President’s Award for her leadership and service to the Morrow County Farm Bureau. Volunteers were recognized, and programs and accomplishments from the last year were reviewed and celebrated. Organization Director Abra Dunn and OFBF First Vice President and District 7 State Trustee Cy Prettyman provided remarks.

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.
