HSUS won’t be on the ballot this November with an initiative that could cause chaos in Ohio’s, and Darke County’s, agriculture industry, as it has in California, Michigan, Florida and other states. The agreement was reached at 3 p.m. today, and did not include participation from the Farm & Dairy industry. What do you think?
