There continues to be a belief with some livestock farmers in Ohio that no one can or will regulate animal care in the state.
California farmers probably had the same opinion several years ago. Now today they are facing the complete elimination of certain types of livestock production.
The reality is that there will be animal care standards in Ohio set by either fellow Ohioans or outside extremists.
State Issue 2 gives Ohioans the opportunity to create a board that will protect food choices for our consumers and bring a reasonable approach to animal care. If the Livestock Care Standards Board is created, most livestock farmers will see few changes on their farms.
Our neighbors and friends who are members of commodity groups and state organizations are not the opponents. The out-of-state activist groups who will force livestock productions out of our state are quite willing to “close the door” on our family farms.
Ohio voters will back Issue 2 if we can show them why it is right not only for agriculture, but for the food consumers of Ohio. For once in our lives we must be pro-active.
Spread the word!! Vote YES on State Issue 2!!
