Farm Bureau from a Glance -  May 16, 2018

Here are the final scholarship award winners.

An additional $500 General Ag Scholarship was awarded to:

Alan Osterhaus, son of John and Monica Osterhaus of Chadwick. Alan graduated from Milledgeville High School in 2015 and currently attends the University of Wisconsin- Platteville. Alan is pursuing a degree in Dairy Science and Ag Business. During his time at Platteville, he has become an Resident Assistant and been on the Dean’s List. Alan participates in Pioneer Dairy Club where he holds the secretary position.

This year’s Harold Schmidt Memorial Forestry Scholarship in the amount of $1000 is being awarded to Ashley Beyers.

Ashley Beyers, daughter of Jason and Heather Beyers of Lanark.  Ashley attends Gannon University in Pennsylvania studying Pre-Vet med.  Ashley is a member of Phi Eta Sigma, vet club, and made the Dean’s list. She has assisted with Give Day, Fall Festival, and Wellness Fair while at Gannon University. During high school Ashley was very active in the FFA being reporter her senior year.

Since the Carroll County Farm Bureau Foundation was started in 1990 they have given out $91,200 in scholarships. Wow! The crazy part is $91,000 would barely cover 4 years of schooling at a 4 year school at this time.  They also provide grants to teachers to attend the Summer Ag Institute and they have also donated ag books to libraries and daycares in the past.

It is hard to believe it is graduation time. For myself, I have one more year. Time has certainly flown. School gets out next week.  This means we have library programs coming up in June! Watch for dates and times to be released here in the next two weeks.

I hope you are out there trying out which burger could be the best burger in Carroll County! I see we have over 100 votes so far! You can go to our Facebook page or to our website and find the link to vote! Deadline is May 25th.

CONVOY….have you sent in your registration to participate yet? The inaugural Carroll County Convoy is set for Saturday, June 9th. The event will be held rain or shine! If you have a semi (no trailers), straight truck, tandem, etc (no pick up trucks), it is time to get registered!  You will have a morning of driving through Carroll County showcasing your truck. Cost is $20 per truck and $10 for a rider (to cover lunch).  Registrations are due by June 1st.

We have made one small change to the day….we won’t be keeping you after lunch. We know it is summer and everyone is busy, so we are going to have an On the Road program with Kevin Rund closer to fall when everyone is preparing for harvest.  Contact our office for a registration form or print one off of our website at www.carrollcfb.org.
