AgriPOWER opens doors

AgriPOWER Class VI graduation has come and gone. It’s hard to believe it has been nine months. We began this journey as 19 strangers with a passion for agriculture and personal development, and came out as 19 friends with a greater understanding of each other and the industry in which we all are connected. I am truly grateful for the opportunity to have participated in this program. I have grown as a person, an agriculturalist and a leader. All attributes that will be helpful for the future of our industry and my family.

Value from the people

As Class VI of Ohio Farm Bureau Federation’s AgriPOWER Institute wrapped up, I couldn’t help but think back to the first session when my peers and I outlined our personal goals for the program. The goals I listed in that July session included learning more about Ohio agriculture and networking with agricultural professionals across the state. I did not imagine in that beginning session just how much AgriPOWER Institute would help me meet those goals.
