The Ohio Farm Bureau Property Protection Program was utilized in Gallia County. The $5,000 reward was awarded this month to an individual who aided the sheriff’s department with useful information to catch a thief in process at Carmichael Equipment Sales, that later turned into the finding of the Gallia County Soil and Water Conservation no-till drill that had been stolen prior.

The $5,000 reward is paid to both Farm Bureau members and nonmembers who provide information that leads to the arrest and conviction of someone who committed arson, aggravated burglary, burglary, breaking and entering, criminal damaging or endangering, criminal mischief, criminal trespass, aggravated trespass, theft, vandalism or vehicular vandalism (all as defined in Ohio Revised Code) on a Farm Bureau member’s property.

Those pictured from left to right are: Gallia County Sheriff Matt Champlin, Gallia County Farm Bureau President Jake Bodimer, Tiffany Riehm with SWCD, John Carmichael owner of Carmichael Equipment Sales and Nick Mills with SWCD.

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.
