Four local agriculture industry royalty members participated in Ohio Hi-Point’s Kenton FFA’s Ag Awareness Wednesdays, held at the Mary Lou Johnson Library in Kenton, throughout June.
Dairy Princess and Chapter Vice President, Morgan Houser, organized the events at the library through the chapter’s Ag Awareness Committee. Each Wednesday in June, FFA members brought an animal to the library to provide an insight into the many sides of agriculture.
Some highlights from the past month include a visit from Haley Sherman, Hardin County Horse Queen; Demi Snider, Hardin County Beef Queen; Sarah Heilman, Hardin County Sheep Queen; and Althauser Honey Farms.
Sherman brought miniature horses and shared her knowledge of breeds and proper nutrition with the community while Snider explained the difference between a beef cow and a dairy cow. Community members also learned about caring for sheep from Heilman and Althauser Honey Farms joined the OHP Kenton FFA members at Mary Lou Johnson Library to explain the important role bees have in creating food for the community.
The Ag Awareness Wednesday’s provided an educational experience for the community members, as well as an opportunity for the OHP Kenton FFA members to share experiences and raise awareness for the program. The students hope to continue community events throughout the next school year.
