  8. Leasing Your Land for Shale & Solar Webinars

    May. 29, 2020

    Across the state of Ohio, landowners are receiving offers to lease their property for the development of oil and natural gas wells, pipelines or utility-scale solar projects. While the state is regionally divided between the two, with shale development primarily occurring on the eastern side of the state and solar development being concentrated in southwestern Ohio (with some exceptions), the questions about legal agreements, construction and oversight of both are similar.

  9. Coronavirus Food Assistance Program Available for Farms

    May. 29, 2020

    COVID-19 has hit the agricultural industry hard.  Market prices for major commodities have fallen sharply since COVID-19 reached the United States back in early January.  Milk and cattle prices have declined over 25 percent and corn and hog prices are down 19%. At one time during the pandemic, these prices had dropped over 40 percent.  Early projections suggest total net farm income could be down 20% or more over in 2020.

  10. April 7th 4-H Update

    Apr. 08, 2020

    Dear 4-H members, families, volunteers and supporters,

    It is with a heavy heart that I share this news with you. Due to ongoing health concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic, the decision has been made to cancel all Ohio State University Extension in-person programming through July 6. This includes all 4-H programs, activities, and events. Additionally, we’ve made the very difficult decision to cancel all 4-H camps thru August 31. Although in-person programming is cancelled, we will continue to offer virtual 4-H experiences.
