Local farmers and agriculture supporters gathered at Wayne Upton’s horse farm in Frankfort Thursday evening were urged to spread the word about state Issue 2 to “city folk.” Farm Bureaus from three counties and state Rep. Ray Pryor conducted the public information session to help those in the agriculture industry learn more about Issue 2, a proposed amendment to the state Constitution that would create an Ohio Livestock Care Standards Board to set rules for livestock treatment in the state of Ohio.
