Approximately 300 county Farm Bureau members, including representatives from Fairfield, Hocking, Pickaway and Ross counties, attended the annual Ag Day at the Capital on Wednesday, Feb. 16, 2022 and met with state representatives and state senators. Members discussed priority issues such as strengthening the food supply chain, protecting landowner rights, supporting the next generation of farmers and connecting rural Ohio.
Among the speakers were Ohio Supreme Court Justices Pat DeWine and Patrick Fischer, pictured above.
