Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Ohio Farm Bureau member Sarah Ison of Moscow was recently selected to The American Farm Bureau Federation’s 10th Partners in Advocacy Leadership (PAL) class. American Farm Bureau created the PAL curriculum as a high-level, executive training program that prepares participants to represent agriculture in the media, public speaking, congressional testimony and other advocacy arenas. Program graduates gain opportunities to promote awareness about issues important to farmers and consumers.“Farm Bureau is equipping young leaders for effective engagement,” said Zippy Duvall, AFBF President. “The members of the new PAL class are already elite leaders. We look forward to seeing them progress to the highest levels of agricultural advocacy.”Ison is owner and president of Cincy Beef and teaches as an adjunct professor in microbiology at Northern Kentucky University. She and her husband have a commercial and registered Angus cow-calf to finish operation. She is a member of the Clermont County Farm Bureau, county Cattlemen’s Association and a volunteer with the Felicity High School FFA chapter.PAL training involves four learning modules designed to develop specific advocacy skills while exploring components of leadership and its theories and philosophies. The modules build on one another over the two years of the program and include intense, in-person, hands-on training.PAL graduates emerge with the experience and confidence — in everything from legislative policy-making and issues management to social media and media relations — to effectively engage all critical stakeholders.To be eligible for the PAL program, candidates must be between the ages of 30 and 45, with demonstrated leadership skills. The program is sponsored by American Farm Bureau, Farm Credit and Bayer Co.

Fans and competitors of Jack Nicklaus knew he had very few weaknesses in his legendary, record-setting golf career. There is, however, one weakness he confesses to off the course — ice cream — and now he’s giving into it and sharing it with the public.Salted Caramel Toffee, one of the seven rich and creamy varieties in the new line of Jack Nicklaus premium ice creamIn a partnership between two great family-owned companies, rooted in the Midwest, comes Jack Nicklaus premium ice cream, manufactured by a division of The Schwan Food Company — the 60-year-old Minnesota-based manufacturer and marketer of fine frozen foods and nationally renowned for its home delivery service.The new Jack Nicklaus pint-sized ice cream will be available at Winn Dixie, Bi-Lo and Kroger stores in select markets with a suggested retail price of $1.99. The ice cream comes in seven rich and creamy varieties, loaded with real ingredients. Flavors include: Warm Spiced Butter Pecan, Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl, Salted Caramel Toffee, Strawberry Lemonade, Triple Chocolate, Coffee and Donuts, and Homemade Vanilla.To launch the new business endeavor, Jack Nicklaus teamed up with Schwan’s Global Supply Chain, Inc. (“Schwan”). With a shared commitment to philanthropy, Schwan has become a supporter of the Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation (nchcf.org). The Foundation’s goal is to provide families access to world-class pediatric healthcare. Beyond the ice cream pilot program in 2015, the Nicklauses hope to tie in other children’s charities to sales of the product.Between Jack, his wife Barbara, and Schwan, there was a detailed collaboration to perfect the line.“It’s no secret that I love ice cream,” Nicklaus confessed. “Needless to say, I have never had so much fun in the research and development of a product. The team at Schwan has a world-class product development center. Together, we have created a variety of flavors — all with real ingredients — for a quality, premium ice cream at a value price.”The ice cream introduction extends the Nicklaus Companies efforts to celebrate the life and lifestyle of Jack Nicklaus by introducing quality consumer products, with a philanthropic tie-in. Among the Nicklaus-branded or licensed products introduced in recent years that benefit children’s charities are water, wine, lemonade, sunglasses, and golf balls.“Jack’s whole life is synonymous with excellence, family, and charity,” said Nicklaus Companies Co-Chairman Howard Milstein, “And our new collaboration with Schwan embodies all three values in a hand-picked selection of delicious ice cream flavors that also sup￼ports children’s healthcare. What could possibly taste better?”
