Ty is the man
Really enjoy being able to hear about what is happening in Ohio Ag. I also like that it’s not just about the challenges but also the successes. Keep up the great work!
Thank you for bringing relevant issues in Ohio to discussion
I understand it’s put on by the farm bureau and I find that information interesting since it is a large aspect of our state’s economy and lifestyle. However, I wish there were more episodes on more diverse issues the state is facing even if not specifically an agriculture issue. I loved the interviews of candidates during election season.
