    Study finds 3 percent of food wasted when adults choose their meals, versus 40 percent from boxed lunches

  8. CAUV values on agricultural land are expected to decline by 11.2% per acre on average

    Feb 7, 2018

    There are two types of tax values that are on the minds of farmers: market value (the value per acre for highest and best potential use) and current agricultural use value.  Farmers who farm more than 10 acres and participate in the Current Agricultural Use Value (CAUV) program typically benefit from lower tax bills because tax is calculated based on below true market values.  The program began in 1973 with the intention of leveling the playing field for farmers by computing farmland values based on crop yield, soil conditions, interest rates, and crop prices that have proven to be volatile.

    Jan 23, 2018

Some fifty-five percent of our state’s exports go to Canada and Mexico, who happen to be our partners in the North American Free Trade Agreement, best known as NAFTA. With that as a backdrop, you can understand why Ohio’s business and farm communities are more than a bit concerned when President Trump says he may want to back away from the trade deal. Why NAFTA is important, to all Ohioans, on this episode of Town Hall Ohio.
