If you’ve been following social media and some non-ag news sites or had the chance to visit Wilmington last week, you’ve been seeing and hearing a lot of information, and some misinformation about what occurred at The Clinton County Fair. To get a balanced perspective, the Ohio Ag Net team talked to some people who are close to the situation from many different angles. Matt Reese traveled to the Ohio Department of Agriculture to visit with State Veterinarian Dr. Tony Forshey about the difficult decisions he had to make after the H3N2 virus was detected in the hog barn of the Clinton County Fairgrounds. Ty Higgins called up longtime 4-H advisor Kayla Alexander and hog breeder Jamie May to get their thoughts on last week’s happenings as well. You can hear it all on this Ohio Ag Net Special Edition Podcast, brought to you by AgriGold.
Not much going on over Ohio today, as we take a look at the forecast update, we're still seeing some scattered at showers lingering in Northeastern parts of Ohio. This is just part of the feature that came through overnight last night for the bulk of the state today, we see clouds and some sunshine, but I don't think we see a lot more precipitation.
