The Dean’s Steer Show Idea Was Originally Just a Jest

The 2022 Dean’s Charity Steer Show will be at The Ohio State Fair on August 2. Ohio Farm Bureau president Bill Patterson and senior director of communications Ty Higgins are among the teams of ag community leaders, business leaders, and area broadcasting celebrities learning from experienced, young 4-H exhibitors to raise money for Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Ohio. Ty Higgins, senior director of media relations for the Ohio Farm Bureau interviewed Cathann Kress vice president for agricultural administration and dean of The Ohio State University College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences about this fundraiser that is back after the inaugural show in 2019. Kress says she was pleasantly surprised when the group at RMHC liked her unorthodox idea.
