Buckeye Farm News

During county Farm Bureau annual meetings, local farmers gather to take action on the issues facing their communities.  They may discuss the need for a stop sign at a dangerous intersection, suggest changes to state laws or provide input on federal regulations.

These discussions will produce recommendations that shape Ohio Farm Bureau's policy book, which provides the organization's marching orders. If you've never attended a county annual meeting, it's a perfect opportunity to see the organization in action, to connect with other local farmers who share your concerns and to give your input on how Farm Bureau can best work for you.

Each farmer gets a vote on policies that may be forwarded to the statewide policy development committee. At the Ohio Farm Bureau annual meeting, farmer delegates discuss and debate how Farm Bureau can best take action on issues important to agriculture and rural Ohio.

For more than 90 years, Ohio Farm Bureau has been a strong  voice for Ohio's farmers due to the grassroots involvement of its membership. With many important issues facing the future of farming in Ohio, now is a great time to get involved.

Below is a list of county annual meeting dates.  For more information about attending, contact your local county Farm Bureau office.  Contact information can be found at www.ofbf.org/counties.
