In this week’s Ohio Ag Net Podcast, Joel Penhorwood checks in from his first trip on the Ohio Farm Bureau County Presidents journey to Washington D.C. He and his round-table of guests, including Rob Leeds, Tyler Duncan, Rose Hartschuh and Michelle Abfall talk about the issues covered this week with Ohio representatives inside the beltway and some highlights from the trek.
Dale Minyo caught up with Ohio Department of Agriculture Director David Daniels, which was hard to do this week with the Director zig zagging around the state touting Ohio’s #1 industry during Ag Week.
And Ty Higgins calls up Latham Farley. Farley farms in Englewood, Ohio and he, along with a big group of farmers from all across Ohio will be taking supplies like hay, fencing and milk replacer to farmers and ranchers in need after wildfires ravaged parts of Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas and Colorado. Find out about efforts being made this weekend at Ohio Beef Expo. If you would like to help out, there are a number of different ways. Find out about those opportunities here.
There has also been a fund set up to help move the donated hay to the affected areas. Checks can be made to Ohio’s Kansas Rancher Wildfire Relief Efforts and mailed to 6348 Parks Rd, Sycamore, Ohio 44882.
