Inside the 2018 July/August edition of Our Ohio magazine, readers will find an in-depth look at the struggles of the dairy industry and Farm Bureau’s efforts to help, a feature about one Clinton County member who is helping at-risk youth through 4-H, as well as a story about a beef co-op founded by member families in Brown County.
The issue includes a feature on the efforts one family and its workforce on a Montgomery County farm go through to ensure their seed corn is detasseled thoroughly every summer. Members and horticulturalists share their insights on the joy of raising heirloom plants in another feature. Finally, Our Ohio catches up with Ohio State Fair General Manager Virgil Strickler as he and his staff prepared for the 165th annual event at the state fairgrounds.
Also in this issue, OFBF Executive Vice President Adam Sharp’s Across the Table column literally puts into perspective the mountain of regulations farmers have to adhere to annually. A long list of Grow & Know events includes breakfasts on the farm and much more.
