Ohio Agriculture

The first part of a new year is always a great time to reflect on the past 12 months and set goals for the next 12. What went right, what went wrong and what did we learn? On this Our Ohio Weekly, we ask those questions from an agricultural perspective and get the answers from an economist, an agronomist and an agribusiness leader.

00:00 – Dr. Roger Cryan, American Farm Bureau’s chief economist, Chris Henney, president and CEO of the Ohio AgriBusiness Association and John Brien, Eastern agronomy manager for AgriGold talk about the good and the bad from 2021 and take a look at 2022.

23:50 – On this “To the Beat of Agriculture,” hear from Austin Troyer, a driven, first-generation livestock farmer and learn about how his unique plot of land influenced him to switch from cattle to sheep.

32:20 – Dr. Jay Martin, professor of ecological engineering, Department of Food, Agricultural & Biological Engineering at The Ohio State University talks about a couple innovative projects in the Western Lake Erie Basin dealing with nutrient runoff and conservation practice adoption.

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

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.

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.
