Animal agriculture education is the real issue

Thursday, October 22, 2009

Editor: There is no guaranteed seat for a production livestock producer. The board consists of 13 members: three family farmers, two veterinarians, one food safety expert, one representative of a local humane society, two members from statewide farm organizations, the dean of an Ohio agriculture college and two members representing Ohio consumers. It does not […]

Vote yes on Issue 2 to continue agriculture’s tradition

Friday, October 16, 2009

Editor: I am a local retired food animal veterinarian. I am currently a beef and grain farmer here in Tuscarawas County and I support Issue 2.

Reader: Take a stand and vote yes for Issue 2

Thursday, October 15, 2009

Editor: As president/CEO of a grain marketing and farm supply cooperative in Ohio, I want to make sure people understand the importance of passing State Issue 2.

Ohio is up to bat on Issue 2

Monday, October 12, 2009

Editor: Does anyone have a better solution than Issue 2 to protect Ohio livestock farmers? Farmers are uniting across the state to protect their farms and family’s way of life. Agriculture is one of the largest parts of Ohio’s economy. How large? One in six Ohioans has an agricultural related job, including our local vets, […]

Guardian angel on board

Monday, October 12, 2009

Editor: The current recall from Toyota Motor Corporation brings to light an experience we previously had. Last fall while motoring to the Amish country, we exited off the Route 30 ramp toward Navarre onto Route 21. In doing so, our floor mat slid forward without any notice causing our accelerator to stick. This rubber floor […]

Sen. Wilson: Issue 2 makes sense, vote yes

Monday, October 12, 2009

Editor: As someone who grew up down the road from a dairy farm in Belmont County, I have great respect for Ohio’s farmers. If you ever need a straight forward answer to a question, just ask a farmer. You can count on folks who work hard and play by the rules to have a lot […]
