A conversation with Tadd Nicholson, executive director of the Ohio Corn and Wheat Growers Association
OCJ: How do you see OCWGA evolving in the next few years to better serve Ohio’s grain farmers?
Tadd: As the industry organization for corn and wheat farmers, OCWGA is counted on to head off problems and create new opportunities for grain farmers. To accomplish this we will need to become even more proactive and visionary in our work. We will need to become creative in the ways we arm our members with information and tools to better represent themselves and our industry as a whole on very complex issues.
OCJ: Ohio’s grain farmers are facing a number of crucial challenges right now, including the battle over ethanol and the RFS. What are the key points corn growers need to remember on this issue and how will OCWGA be involved in this debate moving forward?
