Ohio Farm Bureau Federation members shared a wide range of policy issues impacting agriculture in recent meetings with members of Congress.

Advocacy chairman Matt Aultman tells Brownfield farmers are concerned about profitability this year with operating costs remaining high and incomes projected lower.

“Year over year operating cost for, they give an example, here $350,000 went from somewhere in the neighborhood of $6,000 or $7000 to manage that interest rate on that operating line to over 20,000 now,” he shares.
