Ohio Ag Connection - 02/22/2024

Hundreds of Ohio Farm Bureau members gathered in downtown Columbus to meet one-on-one with their state senators and representatives during Ohio Farm Bureau’s annual Ag Day at the Capital Feb. 21. Ohio Farm Bureau priority issues such as eminent domain reform and additional landowner protections, water quality, a more resilient food system and the expansion of affordable high-speed broadband access were introduced, along with a host of other community issues.

“This is an awesome opportunity for members from all across the state to come together, meet individually with their legislators, share the importance of farming and Ohio’s agriculture industry and show off the grassroots power of this organization,” said Jack Irvin, vice president of public policy with Ohio Farm Bureau.

Attendees also took part in a Leadership Panel with members of the 135th General Assembly discussing the future of important agriculture policies currently being considered in Columbus, including property taxes, environmental stewardship, education and workforce development and rural healthcare, among other topics.
