Wood County: Farm bureau names 2022 ag excellence award winner

Staff Writer

Stacie Anderson of Wood County is the winner of Ohio Farm Bureau’s Excellence in Agriculture Award for 2022.
The award competition is designed as an opportunity for young agricultural professionals who do not derive the majority of their income from production agriculture.
Anderson grew up on her family’s farm raising corn, soybeans, wheat, and specialty crops, while participating in 4-H and FFA as well. She is a graduate of Ohio State University where she earned her undergraduate degree in agribusiness and applied economics. Anderson later continued to earn her master’s degree in agricultural communications.
She and her husband, Brian, grow corn, soybeans and wheat, as well as raise poultry (for direct-to-consumer products) and a small herd of beef cattle. Off the farm, Anderson is the agronomy sales manager for Legacy Farmers Cooperative, where she manages sales of crop nutrients, chemicals, seeds, and precision products
“With a career, farm business and family all rooted in agriculture – my promotion of the industry never ends,” Anderson said in her application. “Whether it involves working with growers to position agronomy products on their farm during the work day, hosting customers to tour our own farm in the evening, or volunteering at a Farm Bureau event on the weekend – I constantly try to be transparent, open minded and share my everyday experiences with all those I encounter.”
She is a member of the Wood County Farm Bureau, where she serves as the president of the board of trustees. She also serves on multiple local and state boards providing leadership and direction to those organizations.
As the 2022 winner, she receives expense-paid trips to the 2023 Young Agricultural Professionals Winter Leadership Experience and the 2022 Ohio Farm Bureau Annual Meeting, a media package, a $3,000 prize of choice, and will compete at the American Farm Bureau Annual Convention in San Juan, Puerto Rico in January 2023. Prizes are courtesy of Farm Credit Mid-America, Nationwide and Ohio Farm Bureau.
