U.S. Farm Report, a syndicated television show focusing on agriculture and agribusiness, visited Ohio State’s Columbus campus in November to film its College Roadshow.
Hosted by Tyne Morgan, the show featured six professors from the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences (CFAES), along with a CFAES student who also plays football for the Buckeyes.
Agricultural economics professors Ian Sheldon, Zoë Plakias, and Seungki Lee provided their take on trade policy, agricultural commodity markets, the supply chain, and local food issues.
OSU Extension faculty Mike Estadt and Peggy Hall talked carbon markets, while rural sociologist Shoshana Inwood discussed health insurance and child care issues on the farm.
Buckeye tight end Cade Stover is majoring in agricultural systems management, grew up on his family beef farm in Mansfield, and is still heavily involved in its operation. The 6’5”, 255-pound sophomore was Ohio's Mr. Football and Ohio Gatorade Player of the Year after his senior season of high school. After a possible detour to professional football, he plans to return to the farm.
Viewers watch U.S. Farm Report every week on more than 150 stations with an audience of 500,000 weekly, plus RFD-TV. To view the Ohio State/CFAES College Roadshow, visit go.osu.edu/CDkP.
