Farm Bureau offers equine education


COLUMBUS – Two Equine Education Conferences will be hosted by the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation Dec. 11 in Perrysburg and Jan. 15 in Marietta.

Topics. Topics include line fence laws, agricultural zoning, current Agricultural Use Valuation and agricultural districts, animal health, environmental regulations, equine liability, manure management, tax issues, equine business principles and pasture and hay management.
The Perrysburg meeting will be held at the Holiday Inn – French Quarter on U.S. 20. The Marietta meeting will be held at the Lafayette Hotel on Front Street.
For both meetings, registration begins at 8:30 a.m. with a continental breakfast. The program begins at 9:15 a.m. and adjourns at 4 p.m.
