Ohio’s soybean farmers look to a bright future

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Matt Reese and Dale MinyoWhile the current situation for soybeans is less than ideal, there was plenty of talk concerning the bright future ahead at the this week’s 2018 Ohio Soybean Industry Dinner.“Today is not a good situation with disappointing prices and Mother Nature has given us a tough fall to work with in many places. Basis levels are low futures prices are low, but we have to keep the outlook that we continue to be in a growing global demand industry,” said Jim Sutter, CEO of the U.S. Soybean Export Council who spoke at the event. “Soy demand has outstripped growth for corn and wheat for 20 years and will continue to do so. We’ve got some exciting market opportunities around the world outside of China. We’re trying to work in basic markets where we can continue to grow for the long term future and we are working very hard on our “What it takes” initiative to get our U.S. market share up to almost 100% in these non-China markets around the world. It helps that Brazil is focusing on selling their soybeans to China so we have the opportunity to sell our soybeans other places. I know that is not helping with the prices in the very short run, but I think in some months we will see more demand rolling in and then we’ll start to see prices moving to a higher level.”The much-discussed meeting between President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping also offers some reason for hope.“Farmers also have to watch closely on Nov. 29 when there is a dinner between President Trump and President Xi. I hate to hang too much on one dinner of two people, but they happen to be two very important people,” Sutter said. “I think they are going to talk about a lot of things relative to trade. Soybeans are the No. 1 ag commodity relative to trade that will be discussed. So, watch carefully what the outcome of that is.”In addition, the Ohio Soybean Council and Ohio Soybean Association recognized retiring board member farmer leaders in their organizations including: Allen Armstrong (who finished his term as OSA president), Adam Graham (OSA board member), Todd Hesterman (OSA board member), Cindy Parker Haring (OSA board member), and John Motter (OSC board member). Motter also was recognized as the first farmer from Ohio to ever serve as the chairman of the United Soybean Board. Former Ohio Farm Bureau executive vice president Jack Fisher was recognized with the OSC Outstanding Achievement Award.

The lobbyist would go around to the representative groups and try and get the law changed on their topic. Based on the representatives view in the folder, the groups would answer on what they would do to the law. Either they would choose to change it or keep it the same.After all the groups went around they reflected on the pros and challenges of the activity.

Lemieux plays outstanding role for Buckeye field hockey in Ohio return

Ohio State field hockey junior goalkeeper Sarah Lemieux.Credit: Courtesy of OSU Athletic DepartmentSarah Lemieux never thought she would get another chance to play field hockey after having to transfer back home prior to her third year of college.Lemieux, a Columbus native, was forced to leave Division II Indiana University of Pennsylvania and come back to Dublin, Ohio, to be with her family. She never expected she would be lucky enough to wear her goalkeeper gear again, let alone be part of the Ohio State field hockey team.“I had to come home for like financial, like family issues,” Lemieux said. “I didn’t even think I was going to get to play at all anymore.”However, Lemieux’s passion for the game never faltered, and when she heard OSU needed a goalkeeper, she decided to reach out to the coaches.“I didn’t even think I was going to get to play at all anymore and then I heard they needed a goalie, so I was like, ‘I guess I will email them,’ and I did, and they were like, ‘oh my God, like we really need a goalie,’” Lemieux said.The junior was a big part of the team during her time at IUP, but was not sure what her playing time would look like when she came to Columbus. She felt confident in her knowledge of the sport, but was shocked to see how much of a difference just one division made.“I was a starter. I played every game,” Lemieux said. “I had game experience, but it’s a completely different game. Like, it’s a lot quicker, like skill level’s a lot higher, so it’s different but it’s cool.”Coach Anne Wilkinson said Lemieux is a “very mature player” and has already made huge contributions this season.“She came in with some experience,” Wilkinson said. “She is confident, but she’s not over confident and I think she really plays an outstanding role on this team.”When OSU upset then-No. 20 ranked New Hampshire in its second game of the season, Lemieux claimed the Big Ten Player of the Week award in what was her first career start. The game went into double overtime, ending in a shootout. Lemieux denied UNH three times to preserve the victory.So far this season, Lemieux has tallied 28 saves, and Wilkinson said she has great talent as a goalkeeper and understands what is happening when the ball is coming her way.“She can come out so well on the ball,” Wilkinson said. “Her timing is really very good, and she reads the play. She anticipates well, she can handle a scramble, she can handle a lot of people in front of her, in front of the net, she can get down and she can stay focused on the ball. She is able to fight and if she can get to it, she will.”Wilkinson credits her goalkeeper’s strong mindset as a main proponent of her ability to keep her composure, even when things get rough.“She is just so even-keel,” Wilkinson said. “Whether she has a bad game or a good game, I just think she is mentally very strong.”Lemieux not only helps her teammates, but she has a passion for helping children as well. In the past, she has been a nanny to children and enjoys being part of their lives. She still keeps in contact with them and loves when she sees them in the stands at every home game.Lemieux said she was also a nanny for two children with autism a few years ago and babysits a child who has Down syndrome regularly. Her work with children is something she looks to continue after she finishes at OSU.“I am actually going into physical therapy to work with kids with special needs,” Lemieux said. “It was either occupational therapy or physical therapy. I don’t really know yet, but basically just working on everyday tasks in general with special needs kids is something I’ve always been interested in.”While Lemieux loves to spend her time with children, she also enjoys the time she has spent with her teammates at OSU. She said the team’s enthusiasm about the game is great and fun to be around.“Here it’s like everyone (gives) 100 percent like all the time and it’s a lot of fun to play with,” she said.Lemieux and the Buckeyes head to East Lansing, Mich., Saturday to take on Michigan State. Game time is scheduled for 1 p.m. read more
