2014 Farm Science Review-Change and Growth To Be Evident.

The 52nd annual Ohio State University Farm Science Review will be held September 16-18 at the Molly Caren Agricultural Center in London, Ohio, and preparations are well underway for the annual farming showcase, which attracts more than 130,000 visitors each year. “We were very pleased with how the 2013 show turned out in terms of attendance and exhibitor satisfaction,” said Chuck Gamble, manager of the Farm Science Review, which is sponsored by the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences. “This year, we really want to drive the message home that the Review is unlike any other farm show in the country, from our high-tech field demos and world-class exhibitors to our top-notch education and conservation programs.

REDI Driver: The Post Driver Cattlemen Trust

Cattlemen, would you like to have energy left after a day of driving pasture and range posts? Would you like to use the same drivers that commercial fence contractors use?
If you answered yes, then the REDI Driver is for you.
“Our customers spoke and we listened,” said Lorri Evans of REDI Driver, Inc. “Being fence contractors ourselves, we knew cattlemen had a need for a more versatile gas-powered post driver that didn’t limit them to a post size of only 2-3/8". Ranchers need to be able to drive posts from t-posts up to 2-7/8", all with one simple convenient driver, so we created the new REDI Driver Boss.”

Farm Banks Strong

The banking industry continues to be the major source of agricultural credit, providing more than half of all outstanding farm loans, according to the American Bankers Association’s annual Farm Bank Performance Report.

 

The nation’s 2,185 farm banks increased farm and ranch lending $3.8 billion or 5.6 percent in 2011, for a total outstanding balance of $72.3 billion. “The growth in farm loans shows banks continue to meet the credit needs of both large and small farms and remain the most important supplier of agricultural credit,” said John Blanchfield, senior vice president and director of ABA’s Center for Agricultural & Rural Banking.
