Ohio House Bill 61, aimed at reducing nutrient runoff in the Western Lake Erie Basin (WLEB), has earned OFBF’s support.
Grain farmers in Ohio should know there is a safety net in place in case their grain elevator closes its doors. In 1983 the Ohio legislature enacted laws specific to agricultural commodity handlers, including the Grain Indemnity Fund. Here are five things to know.
High crop yields combined with below-normal temperatures and a wet harvest in 2014 have farmers and other grain handlers working with less-than-ideal corn and soybeans. Experts are projecting the deadliest year for grain engulfments since 2010, when 59 entrapments were recorded.
The state legislature is fast-tracking legislation dealing with water quality issues. This week the Senate passed a bill that would ban the application of fertilizer and livestock manure to frozen, snow-covered and saturated ground in the Western Lake Erie Basin. The House is working on a similar bill.
The weather has been challenging in Ohio this week, but the work doesn’t end for farmers. Early in the week we shared some winter photos from our archives and farmers across the state shared their photos with us. Here are ten of our favorite. To see the others shared with us search #OFBF on Instagram or check out posts to our Facebook Page.
