Plans Fight Together

fall fundraiser for November 6

It will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Glenn Mills Community Senior Center, located at 7576 State Route 152 S., Richmond, and all proceeds will go to local kidney dialysis patients.

There will be homemade soups and sandwiches with vendors set up on the ground floor with Anderson having a bake sale and a jerky sale on the ground floor where tickets will also be available for a special draw.

The cost is $ 5 for one ticket or $ 20 for five tickets. The draw will take place on November 6. Among the prizes is a Second Amendment American Flag painting by Jimmy Bee, a $ 250 Wal-Mart card, and a $ 250 gas card.

“We have been doing Let’s Fight Together for eight years” Anderson said. “We help local kidney dialysis patients with gas cards or grocery cards – the little things we try to help with that take away a lot of the discouragement that comes with dialysis.” he said. “Discouraging things like not having gasoline to get to treatment can give a person a reason to quit. We’re also helping with support, although we haven’t been able to do a lot of in-person support groups lately due to COVID-19, ” said Anderson, who has had two kidney transplants, said Let’s Fight Together not only helps dialysis patients, but has also worked for causes related to the military, firefighters, animal shelters and patients with Cancer.

Small-scale cattle operations sometimes find it difficult to market their cattle at prices high enough to recover costs, a spokesperson said. Preconditioning programs and cooperatives offer local producers the opportunity to pool livestock and add value. Preconditioning refers to management practices implemented around weaning that focus on improving the immune system function and nutritional status of calves to reduce the risk of disease and mortality. Cooperatives can help producers better market and process livestock.

The second session on October 28 will focus on BQA certification. Anyone who needs to be certified or recertified is encouraged to attend.

“Consumers are concerned about animal health and the sustainability of the production systems in which their food is raised. “ This statement is just one of many that have led to the education and certification of Ohio cattle ranchers in beef quality assurance to become a priority. Adding even more meaning to that statement, the spokesperson continued, the fact that Tyson Foods, which harvests and processes 25 percent of the U.S. beef market share, as well as Wendy’s, now the second-largest burger chain fast food restaurants in the United States, announced as of 2019, the cattle they buy must come from BQA certified producers and feedlots.

“Not only do consumers today share their concerns, but now companies that are meeting the public demand for a high quality beef product in a humane and sustainable manner also want guarantees that this is happening throughout. the production chain “, noted the spokesperson.

In response, OSU Extension is working in cooperation with the Ohio Beef Council, the Ohio Cattlemen’s Association, and Ohio cattle auctions and collection points to provide Ohio ranchers with several opportunities to obtain the BQA certification. This session will be held at the Ohio Valley Towers Building, Second Floor Conference Room, 500 Market St., Steubenville. Pre-registration is required on Visit to obtain BQA certification online. Online training consists of a series of lessons and quizzes to become certified. The training will last two hours.
