Farm extension programs honored

COLUMBUS — The Ohio Senate unanimously passed a resolution honoring extension programs on their 100th anniversary.
State Sen. Cliff Hite sponsored the bill recognizing the Smith-Lever Act of 1914 that helped formalize agricultural education programs across the country, according to his office.
Hite, R-Findlay, said the programs benefit countless Ohioans.
“I owe most of my agricultural knowledge to the folks at the extensions in my district,” he said.
