Nominate a neighbor
The Ohio Livestock Coalition (OLC), in partnership with the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation, is accepting nominations for the Neighbor of the Year Awards.

The awards recognize two rural residents – one livestock farmer and one non-farmer – for their commitment to being environmentally responsible, courteous to others and respectful of private properties.

A candidate for the livestock farmer award must:

• Be a livestock (dairy, beef, sheep, swine or poultry) farmer;

• Take opportunities to educate neighbors about his/her farming operations and processes;

• Be helpful;

• Share with neighbors that animals require attention and care 24 hours a day, regardless of weekends and holidays;

A candidate for the non-farmer resident award must:

• Keep his/her property neat, clean and trim;

• Take opportunities to ask a neighboring farmer about agricultural operations and processes;

• Keep pets and other domestic animals restricted to his/her property;

• Respect property boundaries and not use farmland for off-road vehicles or walking.

Nominations are due by July 2. Awards will be presented at the 15th OLC Annual Meeting and Industry Symposium on Sept. 7. Award winners will receive a plaque, and $250 will be donated to each recipient’s local charity of choice.

For more information about the awards or to obtain an application, contact Amy Hurst at 614-246-8262 or
