Hundreds of Ohio Farm Bureau members, including representatives from
Cuyahoga Farm Bureau, gathered in downtown Columbus to meet one-on-
one with their state senators and representatives during Ohio Farm Bureau’s annual Ag Day at the Capital Feb. 19.
Ohio Farm Bureau priority issues such as water quality, the farm economy, energy and the development of young and beginning farmers were discussed, along with a host of other community issues.
Attendees also took part in a “fireside chat,” as OFBF Executive Vice President
Adam Sharp sat down with Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine and Ohio Department of
Agriculture Director Dorothy Pelanda to discuss the H2Ohio initiative, trade and
farm stress, among other topics.

Farm Bureau member volunteers. Donita Anderson was there on behalf of Cuyahoga County Farm Bureau.
In addition to Gov. DeWine and Director Pelanda, they also heard from OFBF
President Frank Burkett, Ohio Senate President Larry Obhof and Ohio House
