We are just weeks away from the Ohio Farmers Union 83rd Annual State Convention!
Our convention will be held in Columbus at the Airport Marriott. The convention begins at 1 p.m., Friday, January 27 and will conclude with a luncheon on Saturday, January 28.
While we are still finalizing the roster of presenters, we will be hearing from Director of the Ohio Dept. of Agriculture David Daniels and Fred Yoder of President-elect Donald J. Trump’s Agricultural Advisory Board. Stay tuned because we are adding to the program.
Just as importantly, we will of course be setting OFU’s policy priorities for 2017 as well as holding the annual by-laws committee hearing and holding our annual OFU Farm-PAC event on Friday evening before the banquet.
