“Looking Toward the Future of Agriculture in Ohio”

The June CIFT AgriBusiness Forum features ODA Director Brian Baldridge. The presentation will take place online.

During this program, he will discuss Ohio’s current state of agriculture, spotlighting key programs and initiatives that aim to strengthen the industry and ensure consumer safety. This is a great opportunity for our audience to hear about the state’s efforts to support Ohio’s No. 1 industry, which contributes over $124 billion annually to the economy, and to gain insights into future trends and regulatory frameworks shaping agriculture today and in the future.

Previously, Baldridge served two terms in the Ohio House of Representatives, where he represented the 90th House District, encompassing all of Adams and Scioto counties, as well as the eastern part of Brown County. During his tenure, Baldridge served on the House Agriculture Committee and advocated for programs supporting the agricultural industry.

Director Baldridge has strong Ohio and agricultural roots. He is the seventh generation raised on the family farm that is still operational today. Throughout the years, he participated in, and has been a vocal advocate for, the 4-H community and FFA.
