Farm Tour 2010 with Jim Zehringer - July 27th

Tuesday, July 27, 8am to noon, Sponsored by Brethren Retirement Community
Tour Guide and Emcee – State Representative, Jim Zehringer
Scott Zumbrink will be joining him on this tour

State Representative, Jim Zehringer, who is also a farmer, will be the “emcee and tour guide” for this fun and educational tour. Mr. Zehringer is well-connected to the agricultural community and the tour will showcase farms using modern farming practices and those who are using the latest innovative technology.

This is a driving tour – the bus will stop at farms as they are discussed but participants will remain on the bus in order to include more farms as part of the tour. The bus will be stopping for a short break in Ft. Recovery at the museum with a brief tour and will return to Brethren Retirement Community around noon.

The tour will take place in an air conditioned bus. The tour costs $10 and includes breakfast. Seating is Limited - Please call now to reserve your spot. Jan Teaford 547-7628.

On the bus, Jim will be discussing: 1) Grand Lake St. Marys – the challenges and water shed, and 2) HSUS – Livestock care standards and the HSUS agreement Governor Strickland recently signed.

He will be highlighting the following agribusinesses – in many cases, the farmer will be boarding the bus to speak - other farms will be discussed as we drive by them (*Keller Grain, *Weubker Farms – Hogs, *Zumbrink Farm – Turkey, *Ross Medford Farms – Poultry – high tech, *Meiring Farm Poultry and Fish Farm (Jim’s), *Halls – Tractors and Combines, J & M – Wagon Manufacturer, Cooper Farms, Ft. Recovery Equity, Ft. Recovery Museum – short tour of the museum and rest room stop; and some yet to be determined stops).

*Farmer or his representative will board the bus to talk to the group.
