Ohio’s agriculture industry faces an uncertain future in the age of COVID-19.

Farms continue to operate, but commodity prices haven’t caught up to skyrocketing demand for farm goods brought on by the crisis and market volatility makes it harder for farmers to plan.

Correction: In this episode, a guest states that all livestock auctions are shutdown. That is not the case.

Today on All Sides with Ann Fisher, the impact of the coronavirus on Ohio agriculture.

Guests:

  • Ty Higgins, Director of Media Relations, Ohio Farm Bureau
  • Bill Brown, farmer, owner of Brown Bros. Farms in Paris, Ohio
  • Debra Knapke, The Garden Sage
