Ag is Everyone's Business 2023
The Highland County Chamber of Commerce is happy to announce the presentation of the 11th Annual Ag is Everyone's Business Event taking place on Friday, March 3, 2023. The event will once again take place at Beckmann Farms in Hillsboro and will feature speakers Ty Higgins and Amanda Radke.
Amanda Radke is a fifth generation rancher from Mitchell, S.D., who has dedicated her career to serving as a voice for the nation’s farmers and ranchers. Radke regularly tackles industry issues as a columnist and speaker. A former National FFA Extemporaneous Speaking Champion and National Beef Ambassador, Radke has spent the last 15 years on the road fighting for the agriculture, rural America, and the western way of life. She’s gone head-to-head against animal rights activists, environmental extremists, politicians, and celebrities who seek to eliminate animal agriculture. She believes food security is national security, and her work is focused on keeping producers on the land and ensuring every citizen has access to safe, affordable and nutritious food in this country.
Ty Higgins grew up on his Dad and Grandpa's dairy farm in Licking County, Ohio. He started his career as a farm broadcaster as he studied at THE Ohio State University. After over a decade in country radio he found his way back to agricultural journalism for another 10 years and has been at Ohio Farm Bureau for over three years, currently serving as their Senior Director of Communications and Media Relations. Ty currently lives in Delaware County, Ohio with his wife, Angela and their two kids, Paige and Calvin.
