Our Ohio Weekly: Ohio’s meat processing industry

We have finally turned the calendar to 2021 and although the challenges from the COVID-19 pandemic all still with us, this new year will be a time to look back at those challenges and make changes that will alleviate the problems we faced should something like a global pandemic ever happen again. One of those challenges on the minds of Ohio Farm Bureau and its members has to do with the food supply system, which saw issues on both the production and processing sides in 2020. On this Our Ohio Weekly, hear about lessons learned and steps being taken to prevent a repeat.
