“One of the things I’m heavily involved with in our local community is our schools,” said Davis. “And with the ethanol industry we have seen, in agriculture, most folks, an increase in the value of our land, therefore a lot of the tax base stays in our community and it has helped rural communities and our schools, so I focused a lot on that.”
Moving forward, Davis tells Brownfield it will be increasingly important for farmers to provide comments during the comment period.
“I think probably maybe the most critical thing for all of us in Ohio agriculture, as well as across the country is, our voices have been heard by several in Washington, a very small number, I think it’s important now that we get a large group of people to write comments during the comment period,” Davis said.
John Davis testified on behalf of the Ohio Corn and Wheat Growers Association (OCWGA).
