Join us in supporting the Ohio Farm Bureau Foundation on Giving Tuesday!
Perry County Farm Bureau President Richard Maxwell traveled to Washington, D.C. with 70 other county Farm Bureau presidents March 7-9 to express their concerns about many topics including the 2023 farm bill.
Maxwell met with District 12 Rep. Troy Balderson. He also met with American Farm Bureau staff and heard from members of the U.S. House Agriculture Committee and Senators JD Vance and Sherrod Brown.
