Blog: Ty Higgins
I was born and raised on a dairy farm in Licking County. Using the “its who you know” and “seize an opportunity” mantras, I started my farm broadcasting career right out of high school at WRFD-AM, thanks to my uncle Scott Higgins introducing me to then Farm Director Joe Cornely.
From there my radio path on Columbus country music station WHOK-FM, where I was known as Tyler Jacobs for over 12 years. Eventually I ended up right where I started and where I am most comfortable, back in farm broadcasting – using my real name!
I became a member of The Ohio Ag Net team in 2010 and I am proud to share the great stories about Ohio Agriculture, one broadcast at a time.
I currently live in Delaware County, where I am raising one boy and one girl, with my wife Angela. When I am not coaching my son’s baseball team or rehearsing for my role in my daughter’s dance recital (pictures if you want them), I am grilling, golfing and doing whatever may be on my “honey-do” list at any given moment.

There are so many pressing issues that only Congress can control that [...]Read More
By Ty Higgins, Ohio Ag Net When you think about a family tree, you think of branches and branches of relatives that share a last name, characteristics and ideals with you. No doubt you wonder how some of those branches got there in the first place and you may even want to take a saw [...]Read More
By Ty Higgins, Ohio Ag Net Did you hear the one about the animal rights activist that wanted to be on the board of the 2nd largest meat processor in the world? Some might think this is a story only to tell around a campfire in late October, complete with a flashlight held up to [...]Read More
By Ty Higgins, Ohio Ag Net How big of a deal is the NFL replacement official’s controversy? On Tuesday morning, after what I will admit was a horrendous call that changed the outcome of the Packers/Seahawks game, the lead story wasn’t about how the President was going to address the U.N. later in the day [...]Read More
By Ty Higgins, Ohio Ag Net There is no doubt that the recent drought will have a lasting impact. Not only on the farmer’s bottom line, but it will also result in a higher total of your grocery bill. But at what point did corn become a food and not a commodity? I make this [...]Read More
By Ty Higgins, Ohio Ag Net Last week I had the opportunity to be a part of the Pro Farmer Midwest Crop Tour. This tour is 4 solid days of scouting corn and bean fields from Ohio to the Dakotas and I saw firsthand that it is as bad out there as you are hearing. I [...]Read More
