Reader: Farmers need to read all of Senate bill 310

Friday, April 27, 2012

Editor Once again animal owners have been sold out by Ohio leaders and the Farm Bureau. I was at the Senate hearings for SB310 — less than 30 proponents for it while hundreds of opponents attended. Our words fell on deaf ears as we told them why this bill was not fair, why this bill […]

Michigan’s stance on feral swine hurts small, family farms

Friday, April 20, 2012

Editor You recently printed an article on invasive feral swine [Michigan gets tough on invasive feral swine, April 5.] This article fails to present the whole story. So-called game ranchers and disease are the focus. What is left out are the many small family farmers who raise hog breeds that don’t fit the pork producers […]

Letter writer misrepresented landowners

Wednesday, April 11, 2012

This letter is in response to the letter by Steven J. Beck in the March 22 issue of Farm and Dairy. The tone of the letter is to create class warfare by demonizing rich landowners who inherited or invested in land and are now selling their mineral rights. They now don’t live on their land […]

LETTER: When counting your shale money, remember your local community

Wednesday, April 11, 2012

Editor: It seems everywhere you go you hear or see something about the oil and gas phenomenon that is occurring in and around Columbiana County. Testimonies of property owners getting checks well into the six- and seven-digit mark are plentiful. Overnight millionaires make Jed Clampett and the Beverly Hillbillies seem like a modern day reality […]

Protecting the family farm should be our top priority

Wednesday, March 21, 2012

Editor: (Concerning guest commentaryy by David Kay in Dec. 15, 2011 issue of Farm and Dairy.) It is obvious that the original purpose of the Extension service has not been fulfilled and neither has the public good been served by such projects. Development sociology basically means authoritarian manipulation — certainly not constitutional, and at the […]

Reader: Taxation system needs change

Tuesday, March 20, 2012

Editor: In regard to previous protest letters that I have written in the past concerning the outrageous, unfair and discriminatory taxation system in this country, I must once again put pen to paper to protest for those less fortunate. Why in the world do our various government agencies tax social security benefits, unemployment benefits and […]

Reader: Nonlandowners need to unite

Friday, March 16, 2012

Editor: I’m writing to address concerns about nonlandowners who don’t realize the consequences for them of the so-called “Shale Boom.” By now most, if not all, of them have heard repeatedly about how dangerous chemicals used in hydraulic fracture drilling can get into aquifers and, then, into drinking water. They have also heard about other […]

Pacelle: HSUS is willing to find common ground with farmers

Wednesday, March 14, 2012

Pacelle: The HSUS is willing to sit down and find common ground with agricultural producers to find solutions that are good for farmers, consumers, and animal welfare.

LETTER: Farm Bureau responds to the needs of members

Wednesday, March 7, 2012

Editor: Recently a letter was written asking us where our “power” as an organization comes from as Farm Bureau. Stark County Farm Bureau, as well as every other county farm bureau, is led by its members. We have a 14-member volunteer board of farmers elected by its members at our annual meeting. We ask our […]

LETTER: Humane Society is not being honest with its donors

Friday, March 2, 2012

Editor: It’s mind-boggling for HSUS CEO Wayne Pacelle to dismiss the 150-plus complaints that have been filed with the Federal Trade Commission against his group. Dozens have come from people who have given money to HSUS. For Pacelle to act like it’s all part of a disingenuous ploy is indicative of his arrogance and disregard […]
