Latta to Tour Fifth Congressional District Ag with Director Daniels

Washington, August 25, 2014 | Sarah Criser (202-225-6405)

Congressman Bob Latta (R-OH) will tour four agricultural operations with Ohio Director of Agriculture David Daniels on Thursday, August 28. Ohio’s Fifth Congressional District, which Latta represents, is one of the largest agricultural districts in the state, and this tour will showcase the diversity and strength of the industry, as well as the challenges it has faced, in this region. 

“Ohio’s Fifth Congressional District is home to more than 10,000 farms and is the top producer of soybeans, corn and wheat in the state,” said Latta. “Our thriving agricultural community is a leading economic driver that not only creates jobs and economic opportunity, but also provides American consumers with a safe, reliable food source.”

“With the passage of the Agricultural Act of 2014 earlier this year, we’ve seen the implementation of new Farm Bill policies aimed at maintaining certainty for our producers,” Latta added. “I look forward to continuing to work on and promote policies, like this, that support our vibrant agricultural industry.”
