2023 Noble County Annual Meeting

President Jason Feldner conducted the Noble County Farm Bureau annual meeting of members on Friday, Aug 11 at Floral Hall on the Noble County Fairgrounds in Caldwell. At this meeting the members voted on proposed policies and selected trustees for the Board of Trustees as well as delegates to Ohio Farm Bureau 2024 Annual Meeting. 

Dinner was served by Hog Hollow BBQ. Policy issues included timber/eminent domain issues, dog laws, and broadband.

The program also featured presentations of awards to outstanding contributors to the organization and dedicated volunteers from this past year. Several volunteers were recognized as membership workers this year. One hundred percent board attendance awards were presented to Jason Feldner, Gladys Saling, Clair Schockling, and Duane Weisend. Ninety percent board attendance award winner was Don Archer.

Senior Organization Director Betsy Anderson stated, “Farm Bureau depends on volunteers to accomplish our goals and policies. Noble County is very blessed with dedicated people to serve on their Board of Trustees and as membership volunteers.”

Outstanding programs recognized were L & H Tractor Safety Day, Skillathon sponsorship and our member Jr. Fair signs provided with Brick Insurance Group and Noble County Farm Bureau.

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.
