The Kentucky Farm Bureau Young Farmers hosted their annual summer outing in the Jefferson County Kentucky area this year. The annual outing attracts young farmers, ages 18-35, from all over the state with opportunities to tour agricultural businesses, meet other farm families and have discussions on current farm issues and contests. As a special addition this year Kentucky Farm Bureau invited Indiana Farm Bureau Young Farmers to join in the event as well. The combined group was almost 500 strong.
Among the tours offered was a jaunt into Bullitt County where two Bullitt County Young Farmer families allowed the group to visit their farms. The first stop on the tour was Jim Beam Distillery with a look at how the grains farmers grow is turned into the famous bourbon.
The next stop was the O’Bryan Dairy Farm in Mt. Washington. There the O’Bryan’s displayed their dairy cattle, computerized milking operation and taught the group about the variety of feeds it takes to keep their herd in good health. The harvest method, as well as the finished product for one of those methods, hay silage, was displayed by Todd Cornell. Dean’s Dairy supplied milk to help cool everyone off. The kids also had a chance to try their hand at “milking” a wooden cow supplied by the First Baptist Church of Mount Washington.
The last stop on the Bullitt County tour was the Young & Robards Farm. While there, the group learned about farming in an urbanized environment. The Young & Robards Farm produces beef cattle, corn, hay, soybeans and wheat. They were also treated to a tour of the operation that included test plots of corn. The test plots gave the group an opportunity to see how Round-Up resistant corn and traditional corn grew under the same growing conditions as well as a look at several other varieties of corn. Kurt Mason, a special guest speaker from the Department of Natural Resources spoke to the group about programs designed to help farmers protect woodland areas of their farms as well as water sources and wildlife habitat.
The entire group enjoyed a varied tour of Bullitt County’s agribusiness and had an opportunity to learn about programs and techniques that may benefit their farms as well. The conference ended with a dinner cruise aboard the Belle of Louisville.
