Learning where to find the answers

What a whirlwind session! We learned about so many aspects of agriculture in such a short period of time. Everything from social media to touring Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center (OARDC) and had good conversations about GMOs, migrant farm workers and water quality. These are all issues that we in the agriculture industry face on a regular basis and we need to be able to support each other using our own talents and strengths.
