Resource center for 2021 Ag Week

Please find resources to participate in Ohio Farm Bureau’s virtual Ag Week Feb. 15-19. Thank you to our Heritage Sponsor, Nationwide.

2021 Priority Issues

Over the last eight years, Ohio farmers have suffered declining farm income, devastating crop damage, eroding markets and now the effects of a global pandemic. Rural communities are hanging on as their small businesses close, students attempt to learn from home and economic opportunities dry up. In 2021, Ohio Farm Bureau is calling on policymakers to work with us to implement an agenda to help revitalize Ohio agriculture and our rural communities.
