Policy Issues Set by Farm Bureau Delegates

Almost 700 Farm Bureau members attended the 101st Ohio Farm Bureau annual meeting in Columbus December 4-5.  Keynote speakers included Governor Mike DeWine, OFBF President Frank Burkett III, OFBF Executive Vice President Adam Sharp, and Nationwide CEO Kirt Walker.

A record number of delegates representing all county Farm Bureaus discussed, debated and approved policies on topics ranging from wildlife to water quality, to oil and gas issues.  The approved policies set the path for the organization for the coming year for actions they may take and pursue.

Representing Belmont County Farm Bureau at the Ohio Farm Bureau annual meeting in Columbus were delegates Lova and Jerry Ebbert, Carman Mengon  and Rusty Winland.
