A wolf in sheep’s clothing

Friday, July 30, 2010

Editor: A wolf in sheep’s clothing. If you read it and other stories in a recent Farm Bureau publication, you would understand the outrage felt by myself and other members. To make any agreement with The Humane Society of the United States, lends validity to the claims of The Humane Society of the United States […]

We need to stop HSUS

Wednesday, July 14, 2010

Editor; As an exotic animal owner/breeder, I take great pride in being able to own, raise and sell animals to other responsible animal owners. All my animals meet and/or exceed state and federal guidelines in housing and care. On June 30, Gov. Ted Strickland, the Ohio Farm Bureau and the HSUS held a meeting, with […]

Strickland, OFBF ‘sold us out’

Thursday, July 8, 2010

‘The Ohio Farm Bureau is supposed to protect the interests of the farmers; instead they handed poultry, pork and beef farmers over to HSUS on a platter along with the exotic animal owners and dog breeders.’

Wednesday, June 23, 2010

Editor: The Dairy Price Stabilization Bill, H.R. 5288, in the House has a companion bill in the Senate that needs the same support. All Ohio dairy farmers and those who work or support the dairy industry should contact Sens. Sherrod Brown or George Voinovich to ask them to sponsor the bill, with Sen. Bernie Sanders […]

Be wary of backyard, designer dog breeding

Wednesday, June 9, 2010

Editor: According to an article by Dog Trainer Casey Lomonaco, breeders and rescuers should be equally considered when adopting dogs. Consider this alarming statistic. Every 6 years, 67,000 puppies can come from one mother and her litter. As a canine psychologist, rescuer and educator, I ask anyone feeling compassion for abused dogs to consider this […]

Not the standard for Ohio dairy farms

Thursday, June 3, 2010

Editor: I am writing in regards to the video that was taken at the Ohio dairy farm. The video was disturbing and wrong in so many ways. To be honest, I turned away and teared up. I still get sick at my stomach thinking about it now. As the wife of a hard-working dairy farmer, […]

Ohio’s dog auctions should be banned

Tuesday, June 1, 2010

Editor: As an individual whose family members include farmers and breeders, it is my firm belief reporter Chris Kick has chosen to ignore the legitimate concerns of Ohio voters, and the perspectives and expertise of respected animal welfare scientists and veterinary experts, as a means in which to boost circulation for Farm and Dairy (“Holmes […]

It’s not a levy, but sales tax vote impacts Extension, too

Thursday, April 29, 2010

Editor: On May 4, 2010, voters will be asked to approve the 1 percent sales tax for Columbiana County. The outcome of this vote will greatly impact Ohio State University Extension in Columbiana County. County commissioners are required by law to fund mandated programs. Extension is not a mandated program and without the passage of […]

Youth need the foundation 4-H provides

Wednesday, April 21, 2010

Editor: I send this note to express to you and others my concerns about the loss of funding for our county 4-H program. All four of my children were involved in 4-H as children, and in adulthood one son (and his wife) and one daughter (and her husband) have also been involved. It provided an […]

Carroll County Extension levy will give back to community

Friday, April 9, 2010

Editor: As April 15 approaches, I, like many of us, am painfully aware of the burden taxes have put on our society. We look at our 1040 forms and think of the possibilities we could use that money for. We know that our tax money will disappear into the black hole of Columbus or Washington, […]
