The speakers focused on the financial aspects of agriculture, global markets and how to maximize the prices farmers can receive for their crops.

In addition, Dorothy Pelanda, director of the Ohio Department of Agriculture, gave an overview of her department and what the office is doing for farmers such as providing grant funds to help farmers implement practices to reduce chemical runoff into Lake Erie.
