‘Ask The Experts’ a popular feature of Farm Science Review

Farm Science Review is the perfect opportunity to ask experts for information about agricultural issues and challenges.

(Posted Sept. 14, 2023)

Whether it’s learning how to deal with the effects of the weather extremes farmers have faced this year, understanding the complexities of the U.S. Farm Bill and its impact on agriculture, or dealing with questions on farm insurance, Ohio farmers likely have a lot of questions amidst a challenging growing season.

At this year’s Farm Science Review, faculty and staff from The Ohio State University College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences (CFAES), will answer those questions and address some of the top farm management and veterinary medicine challenges facing Ohio farmers.

Sponsored by CFAES, the 61st annual farm trade show takes place Sept. 19-21 at the Molly Caren Agricultural Center, 135 State Rte. 38 NE, in London.

Ask the Experts sessions are held each day of the show across from the Firebaugh Building at 426 Friday Avenue.

“Our experts will share science-based recommendations and solutions to the issues growers are facing regarding weather impacts, narrowing profit margins, market shifts, and many others,” said Bruce Clevenger, an associate professor and an Ohio State University Extension field specialist in farm management. OSU Extension is the outreach arm of CFAES.

“We encourage farmers, growers, people in the ag industry to attend these quick-hitting sessions that refresh at the top and bottom of every hour from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily. Attendees can speak one-on-one with experts in farm management and veterinary medicine to ask questions specific to their needs.”

Some other Ask the Expert topics are:
• Annie’s Project: Celebrating 20 years of empowering women in agriculture;
• Economic view from The Farmgate;
• Is Hepatitis E virus a risk to Ohioans?;
• Molds and mycotoxins in cattle;
• How smart are your commodities?;

Ask the Experts sessions are held each day of the show across from the Firebaugh Building at 426 Friday Avenue.
