Hardin County – Farmers will have two opportunities to attend Extension programs on Tuesday, February 25. Complimentary breakfast will be provided as part of the Conservation Tillage Club meeting held at the Plaza Inn in Mt. Victory starting at 7:30 am. The program will feature a presentation on Agricultural Law by Robert Moore, LPA with Wright Law Company out of Dublin. A former OSU Extension Agent in Fairfield County, Moore will focus his remarks on farm succession, and passing the family operation down to the younger generation. Moore will be joined by Hardin County Sheriff Keith Everhart, who will be speaking on Commercial Driver’s License for Ag, as well as other over-the-road issues and laws that would be of interest to farmers.
The Conservation Tillage Breakfast program series is jointly sponsored by OSU Extension and the Soil and Water Conservation Districts of Hardin, Logan, and Union Counties. Breakfast is provided by the generous support of agricultural lenders and agricultural businesses. This event is open to the public and no advance registration is required.
