Children are especially vulnerable to air quality

Tuesday, December 21, 2010

Editor: According to noted environmental health analyst, Dr. Theo Colborn, water is not the only life support system at risk in producing natural gas — air quality is also at risk.

Criticism of Milk Marketing Improvement Act is undeserved

Monday, December 6, 2010

Editor: There has been a lot of criticism, if not outright slander, leveled against the notion that dairy farmers need a farm milk price that reflects the average cost of producing milk, specifically the Federal Milk Marketing Improvement Act of 2009 (S1645).

Wild and dangerous in Ohio

Tuesday, November 30, 2010

Editor: What lies ahead for Ohio’s animal owners? What future do we have in this great state? What do the next four years hold for Ohio’s beef, dairy, pork and poultry producers?

Monday, November 22, 2010

Editor: Will more government intervention solve the volatility and low profit margins dairy farmers recently experienced? As I review the Foundation for the Future and Costa-Sanders proposals on government mandated supply control, that is the question I continue to ask myself. How will these supply management plans affect the future of the dairy industry in […]

Four types of Ohioans

Friday, October 15, 2010

Editor: With all the current issues in Ohio today, I think back to when things were much simpler. We raised our own vegetables and knew where our food came from. After church the whole family would gather around the table for a huge dinner. Dad used to tell us to always stand for what we […]

The future of Ohio is in our hands

Thursday, October 14, 2010

Editor: As we get ready to elect our Ohio leaders and possibly a new governor we need to consider which of them has done the best for Ohio and which have not. Let’s look at some facts. Agriculture has a long history and remains a huge part of this state. Gov. Strickland, the commodity leaders […]
