Last Wednesday was a dark day for livestock, exotic animal owners, and dog breeders in Ohio, thanks to Gov. Ted Strickland, the Ohio Farm Bureau and HSUS.
Strickland and the OFBF have sold us out. The Ohio Farm Bureau is supposed to protect the interests of the farmers. They handed poultry, pork and beef farmers over to HSUS on a platter along with the exotic animal owners and dog breeders. For years, the OFBF has never helped the exotics animal breeders or the professional dog breeders in Ohio.
I ask all Ohio Farm Bureau members not to renew their membership until there is change at the top. The OFBF needs leaders that have the interest of Ohio agriculture, not HSUS, or any other animal right groups.
Ohio has laws in place to cover animal cruelty. We only need law enforcement to enforce the laws.
Why would Gov. Strickland want to have more job loss in Ohio by shutting down family farms, and professional breeders?
As for the Ohio Farm Bureau they should protect the farming community, not kill it. They say this agreement was the best for farmers, but I don’t see letting HSUS write Ohio’s laws and dictate how we handle our animals as a good course of action.
Unlike what happened in California, Ohio should never give in to the enemy like HSUS, PETA and the ALF. We should think about all the rights that are taken from us by government.
Mr. Strickland, I am sure you sit down to a good steak dinner every now and then; try living on the diet Wayne Pacelle would have the rest of us eating. You will not have my vote in November this year.
I would like anyone who likes freedom, meat, eggs and a pet dog to call Gov. Strickland and the Ohio Farm Bureau to let them know that the people who gave them power, can take it away.
