About The Ohio Livestock Coalition

The Ohio Livestock Coalition (OLC) represents the state’s livestock and poultry farming community, working with farmers, allied members, and livestock and grain farm organizations in partnership to educate and promote issues relevant to animal agriculture and food production.

OLC’s focus is to engage with a diverse group of stakeholders to share fact-based information about environmental responsibility, animal health and well-being, food safety and community involvement.

As a voice for livestock agriculture, OLC represents the interests of the farm community and works to demonstrate the critical social and economic benefits of having a strong and vibrant agriculture industry in Ohio.
