Regional Public Listening Session
May 12, 2010
Independence Elementary School
615 Tremont Ave.
Lima, Ohio 45801
This is one of six public listening sessions to be offered across the state. The purpose of the listening sessions is to allow Ohioans the opportunity to provide input to the board and to educate the board members and public on the various factors the board needs to consider as it begins to establish standards of livestock care.
At each of these sessions the public is encouraged to offer comments to members of the board. Participating members of the public will be asked to respond to the following question: Keeping in mind the factors required by the enabling legislation, how can the board best create standards of livestock care?
The Ohio Livestock Care Standards Board is charged with establishing statewide standards governing the care and well-being of livestock while promoting food safety, preventing animal and human diseases and encouraging local food production.
