Brown County Farm Bureau member Chris Rogers said it was an “amazing discussion on water quality issues” as the event allowed farmers and agricultural leaders to see firsthand the research being done by Ohio State University to protect the ecology of the lake.
The event also was an opportunity for Ohio Farm Bureau’s issue advisory teams to meet to discuss topics including farm policy, environment, labor, transportation, energy, healthcare and more. This year two new advisory teams focused on consumer and food chain issues.
Each team is continuing to develop ideas to be considered during OFBF’s policy process.
Advisory teams are just one of many platforms Ohio Farm Bureau provides for members to give grassroots input. To learn more about participating, contact your county Farm Bureau at www.ofbf.org/counties.
