“Ohio animal owners, unite”
As November grows closer, all animal owners need to work as one since the deal between Gov. Ted Strickland, the Ohio Farm Bureau, and the HSUS.
We have not received the support of the Ohio Farm Bureau. They say they have our backs, I say watch what they do to your back.
I was at the auction today, I saw more people with Farm Bureau shirts than I have in my 45 years. I think they know the back room deal has hurt them. The deal should hurt them. It will hurt all animal owners in Ohio.
I was told we would never win the fight. They never gave us a chance to fight.
I think Ohio needs the Farm Bureau ,but the Farm Bureau needs new leaders. The Tennessee Farm Bureau stood up to HSUS and won. They understand who they work for.
Strickland wants to kill the animal industry since Ohio’s economy is so great, Ohio can stand to lose more money.
Animal rights groups can attack animal owners in Ohio. They can commit a crime, say it’s for animal rights and law enforcement looks the other way. We need to stand as one since we don’t have the support of the governor’s office or Farm Bureau.
We must fight for our rights. It was all the leaders from the commodity groups that signed the agreement: Poultry, Beef, Pork, Dairy, Corn Growers and Soybean Growers. Ohio animal owners need to forget those leaders exist. If the current leaders have their way, we will not have any animals to fight for.
Call your senator and your state representative. Call every week; let your voice be heard. Get a backbone like North Carolina did with hogs and dogs. Tennessee just won their battle. Ohio can also win regardless of what the Ohio Farm Bureau thinks.
When the animal rights people come on your land, remove them, show them the road.
