That includes offering some 180 educational presentations and opportunities presented by educators, specialists and faculty from Ohio State University Extension, the Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center and Purdue University on topics such as agriculture economy, grain markets, land values and cash rents, plus more than 4,000 product lines from 630 commercial exhibitors.

Ohio Farm Bureau will be serving complimentary water and apples to visitors as well as showcasing our member benefit partners such as GM, Caterpillar and our newest partner Rocky Brands and Lehigh Outfitters (members need to log in to ofbf.org to get the link to the Rocky Brands shopping website).

Have a Current Agricultural Use Value (CAUV) story to tell? We want to hear from you! OFBF public policy staff will gather input from landowners and farmers at Farm Science Review about how the current CAUV formula has impacted them. Stop by our building and share your experience.
