Consumers are increasingly worried about the safety of the food they eat. Media have a chance to hear directly from a farm representative about what practices today’s farmers are using to ensure they are providing consumers with high-quality, safe food.
WHAT: As an ag lender and retired extension agent, Dennis Baker knows that the values of Ohio’s farming families are strong enough to overcome the difficult economic challenges inherent in farming. Baker will give a presentation to the West Milton Lions Club about how farmers work every day to produce high-quality products by ensuring excellent animal care, having good farm management practices, and using advanced environmental practices.
Today’s farms look different than they did just a generation ago, but Baker knows that these changes have been crucial to ensuring farmers can maintain the family farm and continue to raise food using less resources than they ever have. He grew up on a pig and grain farm so has seen firsthand the innovations and technology changes that help Ohio farmers remain leaders in providing consumers with quality meat, milk and eggs.
