LOCAL:  Be it resolved that Farm Bureau supports…

  • Seneca County Hands over Hearts CPR Challenge.  We support the efforts of Tiffin-Mercy Hospital and the City of Tiffin Fire Department in their efforts to train CPR  to  5000 people in the next five years  in Seneca County.
  • Recycling of Agricultural Plastics.  We support the efforts to bring an agriculture recycling program to the county.
  • Nutrient Management.  We want to be proactive in the education and voluntary implementation of nutrient management in rural, urban and suburban areas.
  • Planting of trees, shrubs, etc.  We recommend that property owners, when planting trees, shrubs, etc. that the drip line of the mature size of the tree must be within your own property.
  • STATE:  Be it resolved that Farm Bureau supports…
  • Nutrient Management.  We want to be proactive in the education and voluntary implementation of nutrient management in rural, urban and suburban areas.
  • CAUV.  We support legislation that would require woodlands and stand alone woodlots to have a simple forest management plan to qualify for CAUV.  The plans need to be written by a state or private lands forester, thus providing statewide program consistency.
  • CAUV.  We support the importance of wetlands in the state.  Therefore, when parcels change from agriculture use to wetland use we would like recoupment fees waived.
  • Western Lake Erie Basin.  We support equitable funding in the entire western Lake Erie basin, not just the Maumee watershed district.
