Thursday, Sept. 9 at the Belmont County Fair, seven buyers purchased market hogs to be donated back to Belmont County Farm Bureau. Those buyers were T.J. Jefferis, South Central, EQT Corporation, Buckeye Steel Inc., Equitrans Midstream, Gary Helms-Home Improvement, and Hissoms Service Center.

Wesbanco Bank and Stonehouse Veterinary Service LLC-Em Mower paid for the processing, and a total of 1,294 pounds of pork were donated to 10 area food banks. Devin Cain, Belmont County Farm Bureau president, delivered the pork.

As a result of these joint efforts, food banks in Flushing, along with the Daily Bread Center in Martins Ferry, Saint Vincent De Paul Society of Barnesville, First Christian Church Five Loaves Food Pantry in Barnesville, Bridgeport Christian Friendship Council of Churches Food Pantry, Bethesda Project, St. Frances Cabrini Catholic Church of Colerain, Bellaire Salvation Army, Shadyside Fellowship UMC Pantry and St. Clairsville Council of Churches Food Pantry were recipients of the packages of pork.

Thank you to the buyers, Wesbanco Bank and Em Mower again for the generous help and support.

Through its policies it brings together people in the agricultural community and invests in building vibrant communities that support agriculture.

If you have issues with local planning or have legal questions, someone at the Farm Bureau has the answer for you, or they’ll connect you with someone who does.

We go to a lot of Farm Bureau events, and there’s a lot of camaraderie built because you’re meeting with people who have similar interests and goals.

If it wasn't for Farm Bureau, I personally, along with many others, would not have had the opportunity to meet with our representatives face to face in Washington, D.C.
