Ohio Farm Bureau Foundation Golf Invitational

The Ohio Farm Bureau Foundation is excited to invite industry professionals, community members, and golf enthusiasts to participate in the 2024 Ohio Farm Bureau Foundation Golf Invitational June 24 at Scioto Reserve Country Club in Powell. 

The annual golf outing is a cornerstone event for the foundation, with proceeds directly supporting its mission to inspire innovation and cultivate investment in Ohio’s farm and food community. 

Each year,  the foundation recognizes exceptional leadership in Ohio agriculture. This year’s honoree is Dr. John Mossbarger, who owns and operates Midland Acres, a Standardbred horse farm, along with his brother, Jay, nephew Jake, and partner Dr. Robert Schwartz. Serving Ohio agriculture throughout his career as a large animal veterinarian, Dr. Mossbarger was also a 12-year member of the Ohio Farm Bureau Board of Trustees. Dr. Mossbarger currently serves as a director of the United States Trotting Association, formerly served as president for the Ohio Standard Breeders Association and Ohio Harness Horsemen’s Association and was recently inducted into the Ohio Harness Racing Hall of Fame.

Participants of the golf outing can expect a day of friendly competition and camaraderie, with a four-person team scramble format and divisional scoring. Prizes will be awarded to teams in two divisions, ensuring a spirited and inclusive event for all skill levels.

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.
