Water quality, taxation and energy development topped the policy issues addressed during the 94th annual meeting of the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation (OFBF) held Nov. 28-30 in Columbus.

During the policy session, delegates addressed the challenges of keeping farm nutrients out of the state's waters by endorsing farmers' adoption of a management system referred to as 4T, which encourages nutrient applications that are the right source, right rate, right time and right place. Farm Bureau members said they believe all farmers should have nutrient management plans, and the organization encourages ongoing research into ways to farm profitably without harming water supplies.
